The Running with the Stars program involves students throughout Loudoun and Fairfax Counties in Virginia.  Participants train before school two times a week with a coach, typically a parent or teacher, to prepare for a 5K run/jog.  This is a non-competitive activity where we encourage the kids to strive for their own personal best. Our goal is to promote overall health and an interest in exercise.  Ultimately, the kids will have a great time being active with their friends and build confidence along the way.
Practice will be held twice a week on Mondays and Fridays from 8:15am to 9:10am and will meet in the gym. We will run/train outdoors, weather permitting.  In case of bad weather, we will practice in the gym.  If FCPS is closed or opens on a delay schedule, we will not meet that day. Minimum enrollment of 10 students required to hold this program. Max enrollment: 50
