Runners 10 Stretching Program
Join the Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Young Athlete Center for an interactive program designed to help your young athlete prepare for running, whether for cross country, track, 5K or a fun run!
Developed by Washington University pediatric sports medicine specialists, the program focuses on 10 stretching and strengthening exercises to improve flexibility, strength and endurance of the muscles used for running.
Sports medicine specialists and specially-trained physical therapists will discuss injury prevention and lead runners and their parents through a series of stretching and strengthening exercises. Come dressed for a workout! Parents and athletes will work together in this interactive program. We will provide a handout so athletes can continue the program at home.
