We are tentatively planning to start on Tuesday, September 8. As we know this year has been so unpredictable, so we use the word tentative to advise that we will also follow the local and school guidelines at that time. To stay safe, we will be implementing a few changes this year:
• stay home if you don’t feel well or live with someone who is sick
• check-in online
• bring your own water bottles, and we will not have a water refill station
• bring your own snack for after the run
• expect to have fun – all games and activities will be no contact
Distance is Everything. Stay Safe.
We will make up games to remind the kids to stay spread out. We will also follow all local ordinances in relation to mask requirements. As of this writing, masks are not required outdoors in the City of Lakeland, so we will not be wearing masks. We respect every family’s choice to wear or not wear a mask in any location that one is not required.
Location and Times
In addition to these changes, we will be changing our location to Fletcher Park at Lake Bonny. Check-in will begin at 5:00 PM and our workout will begin at 5:15 PM, on Tuesday afternoons. This change will allow us the space to distance, and in addition, this will allow us to accommodate families who wish to participate in the LRC middle school and LRC speed workout programs, which are both on Tuesdays at 6:00 PM in the same location. Please see a map at the bottom of this e-mail for the pavilion that the Kids Run Club will start from, and you can click on it to get directions in Google Maps.
Even if you participated last year, you need you to register again this year so that everyone is current on their waiver, especially in light of COVID-19 precautions.
Participation is always free.
We look forward to running with you soon!
