• Training groups will be limited to 4 runners and training groups will go on different routes and will be staggered. (National Federation of High Schools and Bismarck Public Schools) – require for groups to remain the same day-to-day)
*Side note in regards to the outdoor handout from the Bismarck Public Schools. It say groups of 15, which includes coaches, while practicing social distancing at 6 feet. Obviously this isn’t doable while running. Hence the 4 per group max with social distancing taking place.
You can join our Summer Running Google Classroom for information regarding running workouts, weight training, and keeping track of your running log.
