TEAM CMMD IN TRAINING
Registration OPENS July 13, 2017 at 9am
Team CMMD is helping to get out kids moving! After Broad Street, many of our teammates’ children asked how they could get involved in a running team. Our answer was to create Team CMMD in Training, a series of weekly workouts designed to prepare young runners ages 6-13 for running with Team CMMD. Workouts will culminate in running the Team CMMD This Run’s Personal 5K. These workouts will be held on Sundays at Downingtown East High School September 15th – November 3rd (***10/27/19 will be held at DOWNINGTOWN WEST TRACK). Runners will build a strong running foundation which they can use to participate in future runs.
up to 100 kids, 16 coaches
guest speakers & athletes
fundraising efforts organized by participating kids
KIDS 6-13 ENJOY:
An 8-week running camp meeting every Sunday where running coaches teach kids to build their athletic ability in preparation for running a 5K. Program swag, dri-fit shirt and registration in This Run’s Personal 5K included!
WHO IT HELPS
Our kids learn to run and be active, to volunteer in their community, and to understand cancer and its effects on local families. All program proceeds benefit financial assistance programs for local cancer families including the Karen Baker Scholarship Fund for local high school students touched by cancer.
Summer vacations are just beginning, but we are already looking forward to the fall and the start of the sixth season of Team CMMD in Training. The program will be back, bigger and better than ever, and we look forward to sharing our love of running and community involvement with the next generation.
Who Is Eligible: Team CMMD in Training is open to children Ages 6-13. Runners need to turn 6 years of age by Sept 15, 2019. No exceptions.
The Program: Parents will enroll their children in the 5K program as well as register a “running buddy” for race day. Your child and “running buddy” will then be automatically enrolled in that event for Team CMMD’s “This Run Is Personal” on November 9th.
The Race: Team CMMD in Training participants will be automatically entered into the Team CMMD “This Run Is Personal” as part of their program fee. All children running the 5K are REQUIRED to have an adult running buddy to run with them during the race regardless of their previous running experience. The running buddy will be required to sign up for the 5K as part of the Team CMMD in Training registration.
Practice: Team CMMD in Training practices will be held on Sundays between September 15th and November 3rd. Practice will run from 11:30 AM -12:45 PM at Downingtown EAST track (50 Devon Drive, Downingtown). ***10/27/19 will be held at DOWNINGTOWN WEST TRACK
