Gaining the attention of children for long enough to get them sufficiently warmed up can be tricky, so we always follow a set procedure that makes warming up enjoyable as well as effective.
Our warm us allow parents to help their children to prepare for their races in a safe, effective and fun way that will help to enhance their enjoyment of the day.
We use a play-based approach – Setting tasks such as balancing on buckets, swinging a “hula hoop”, juggling cones and generally running around and having fun with other children is an ideal way to get the kids warmed up without them even realising! Not only that, but it helps to improve their coordination in general.
Following this, we use a more structured approach. Before the start of the race, we go through a simple aerobics session which involves balance, stretching and co-ordination exrecises. Finally, children are given an opportunity to emulate their running heroes by doing the 'Bolt' or the 'Mobot'!
