This section has been designed to help schools and clubs develop fun and varied cross country or distance running sessions for children. Some children find running difficult and often don’t enjoy the annual school cross country. This section pulls together fun games and activities that enable kids to practise the skills of running in a way that builds endurance while having fun.
The Run Jump Throw philosophy that children should be able to learn skills in a fun, non-threatening environment is applied here. All games in this section are fully inclusive and can be modified to meet the needs of the whole group. All children should be able to achieve success
and individual effort should be recognised. The emphasis should be learning and building endurance through fun and play rather than drills and long repetitive runs.
