Building healthy hearts and minds by
bringing the joy of running to children.
So simple …. so transformative!
A quarter of North Beach Primary School students arrive at school 45 minutes early twice a week to participate in a voluntary running group run by parents. There is no free breakfast, merit award or enticement – just the joy of participation. The kids absolutely love it as they get to exercise and have fun running through the bush whilst the school gets a bunch of engaged children when lessons commence. No matter how fit or unfit children are, anyone can join in and run one of the running courses through Star Swamp. Parents and grandparents are welcome to join in too for fitness and quality time spent with their children. It is all about bringing the joy of running to our kids!
Our Running Poem
You are now all Runners.
A gift that’s yours for life.
So use it any time in rain or sun.
If you have a problem, if you’re mad or sad.
Find a path, a beach and start to RUN!
