Youth Programs:

Ready, Set, Run



Ready, Set, Run  is back and better than ever. Join in the fun! While enrolled in Ready, Set, Run your child will learn about and practice fitness, good nutrition, citizenship, and goal setting all while having fun and being safe. We welcome children to participate in Ready, Set, Run as part of a “Tracking Group" or as Individual with a helping adult.  “Tracking Groups” are simply groups of participants who meet weekly with their Ready, Set, Run Leader(s).  The Leader gives your child an organized way to get motivated, educated and helps children keep track of their progress in the Ready, Set, Run  program. “Individual” participation is available for children unable to join a Tracking Group.

Fall 2014 Tracking Groups are forming now for children ages 5-12.

If your child is participating individually the helping adult can provide guidance with
Ready, Set, Run materials.

How it Works For Ready, Set, Run Tracking Groups:
  • We provide a “Leader Manual” with lessons and fun activities, including a Mileage Tracker for each participant.
  • Groups meet weekly (or twice a week) for an hour at a location to be determined by the Leader(s).
  • Participants use their Mileage Tracker to chart their healthy eating and “helping hands”, record their program goals and log their fitness miles.
  • Participants submit miles to the RunVermont office monthly.
  • In addition to mileage incentives, a t-shirt, medal and finisher’s certificate, participants receive monthly newsletters filled with activity ideas, citizenship challenges and tasty recipes.
  • Fall participants are encouraged to participate in our fall fun runs at Catamount Family Center and Shelburne Farms.
  • Spring participants are encouraged to participate in our spring fun runs: Champ on Church and the final event, Spring Festival of Fun (see details below)

How it Works For Individuals:
  • We provide a “Parent Manual” with lessons and fun activities, including a Mileage Tracker for each participant.
  • Participants use their Mileage Tracker to chart their healthy eating and “helping hands”, record their program goals, and log their fitness miles.
  • Participants submit miles to the RunVermont office monthly.
  • In addition to mileage incentives, a t-shirt, medal and finisher’s certificate, participants receive monthly newsletters filled with activity ideas, citizenship challenges and tasty recipes.
  • Participants are encouraged to participate in our spring fun runs: Champ on Church and the final event, Spring Festival of Fun (see details below)
