Program resources

KidsRunClubLogoWhat makes this program awesome is that Kids’ Run Club includes program supports and incentives for coaches and participants, free of charge.

Staff support and school visits

KRC has three program representatives supporting schools and groups from Yarmouth to Sydney. They can help coaches tailor the program, promote participation at school assemblies, motivate participants and provide running clinics.


A runner’s handbook with training guides, tips for running, stretching exercises and information on healthy living is available for participants to view or download.

Certificate of Achievement

Rewarding participants for their hard work and training is key to ensuring they get the most of the program and return the following year. Doctors Nova Scotia has designed a Certificate of Achievement for coaches to present to their Kids’ Run Club members at the end of the season.

Healthy Living Challenge

The Healthy Living Challenge (HLC) is a five-day challenge that encourages participants to be active, eat well and reduce their screen time. It can be used in conjunction with KRC or as a classroom activity.

Although the HLC can be used with learners of all ages, it may be most suitable for middle to senior elementary students (grades two to six).

Running log/training programs

Tracking your runs is a great way to keep you engaged and motivated throughout your training. Being able to see your progress as you move through your program will not only keep you from getting discouraged after a difficult run, but will also help you to build momentum over time, which is key to successful training. All participants receive a running log, which includes training programs, information on running technique and tips for success.
