Date Set for 4th Annual Junior Tiger Fun Run

November 14, 2011

Spring, Texas. Race weekend for the Klein Collins Cross Country and Track and Field Programs 4th anniversary of the Jr. Tiger Fun Run has been set for the fourth week of January, with three 2K age division races scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m., Saturday, January 28, 2012.

 

“We’re in the planning phase for next year and in process of reviewing our efforts with the 2011 race,” said race director David Windsor. “Specifically, we are evaluating ways to increase participation and garner additional support from the community. It’s our goal to make each year the best one yet.”

 

Each year the Fun Run has been growing in participation. “The 2011 fun run drew record participation with more than 100 youth runners”, said Booster Club President, Greg Miller. “As with previous years, the fun run will feature three mixed races for girls and boys in K – 2nd, 3rd – 4th, and 5th – 6th Grades. Medals will be awarded to the top five boys and top five girls in each race”.

 

The Fun Run started out not only as a fundraiser for the school’s running programs but as “a way to encourage kids to be fit and healthy”, said Head Girls Track Coach, Vicki Bevan. “The goal is to make running fun”.

 

Prior to the start of each race there will be stretching and warm ups presented by Klein Collins Cross Country & Track teams. The KC Tigers will also accompany youth on their run, and lead them in cool down activities afterwards. Parents and community are invited to stay and “Meet the Tigers”, enjoy light refreshments and a silent auction. The first 150 youth registering for the event will receive a free T-shirt and goodie bag. There is a $15 entry fee. Medals will be awarded to the Top 5 girls and boys in each race. Register for the “Junior Tiger Fun Run” by January 25, 2011 at http://www.kcxctrack.com/. Klein Collins HS is located at 20811 Ella Boulevard, Spring, Texas 77388.
