Running Camp Gets Kids In Shape for Fall Sports Season

Over the past eight years, Ken Lynch has offered a Summer Fun Run Camp for young Londonderry Middle School athletes preparing for fall sports or who just want to get in shape.
This year, the free program had about 36 local students sign up for running camp and many of which were getting ready for either cross-country or soccer. Helping Lynch recruit and train kids this year was newcomer, Nicole Hand, who acted as an assistant during the five-week camp.
Despite the extremely hot summer conditions this year, runners would start their mornings with warm up exercises, run a warm up lap for about a mile and then run either sprints, hills, or a long distance run. Mornings ended with stretches, a freeze pop, and some running games. Photos by Chris Paul
