The basic camp agenda is:

Our daily schedule is camp starts at 10AM – we appreciate early check-ins 🙂

Camp ends at 12:30 – we ask that parents (or other responsible person) sign-out their camper(s) on our attendance sheet.

Assuming the weather cooperates this is agenda for the week:

Monday – Introductions, instructions and first run

Tuesday – Track & Field Day, with instruction in three T&F disciplines (week 1: hurdles, javelin, shot put; week 2: hurdles, starting blocks, long jump)

Wednesday – Instruction in nutrition and long run

Thursday – Easy run preview of Friday race course and Game Day

Friday – Graduation Day – Race Day – Awards
Friday’s graduation day race is at 11AM – families are encouraged to attend. Free ice pops for all the kids (including their siblings).

We are runners – we never give up and we run rain or shine.
In the event of rain – we meet under the cover of the pavilion at the front of Shedd Park. We’re flexible and are always able to come up with enjoyable actives – even on the rainy days.


Brief History and Why We Call it Noelle’s Running Clinic

In 2007 Noëlle Horelik created the “Noelle’s Running Clinic”.  The idea arose from Noelle’s frustration that when she was in middle school there were no running programs for middle school aged kids.  When Noelle had her first summer break from college she decided to grab a few kids (from her neighborhood) and hold the first Noelle’s Running Clinic.  That first year was just one week and just a few kids.  In 2008 we (GLRR) volunteered to help run and promote the clinic.  It has grown from there.  Most of what we do is still based on the program that Noelle created and implemented that first week.  And so – we continue to call it Noelle’s Running Clinic
