Junior Races

Did you know that there are children’s races as part of Run Garioch too? Children aged 4-12 years old are invited to participate in the Junior Runs sponsored by Inverurie design and print agency, CP&Co.

We’ve designed a junior training programme and will be hosting a block of Running Club classes which will be led by our marathon-running coach, Jamie Reid. Jamie is an experienced runner and an enthusiastic coach who’ll motivate and lead the children using a variety of methods and techniques.

Class location will be weather dependent – the Games Hall will always be available if the weather isn’t in our favour, but Jamie will always endeavour to get the kids outside to practice the race route and train in the fresh air.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • 12-week junior training programme every Wednesday from 8th Jan 2020 – 25th March 2020
  • £4 per class or book the block for £48 (children will receive a training programme handout at the first class)
  • P1s – P3s age group will meet at 16.00 – 16.45.
  • P4s+ age group will meet 16.45 – 17.30.

This is a great introduction to training for an event. Classes will be structured but with a focus on fun.
