What happens if I forgot to log my miles with the coach?
The club will have no record of the miles you ran that day. Please contact us immediately so we will try to help you. Most of the times we saw you and remember you were there if you contact us as soon as possible.
As a courtesy we will add your miles to your log one time only per season.

Can I run the 5k instead of the 2k to obtain my medal?
Yes, you can run either one to qualify for your marathon medal.

What happens if I cannot run the 2k race on February 25th 2023
You won't be finishing the program, even if you have more than 26.2 miles in your log. No exceptions.

How is the Woodlands Marathon related to the Juniors program?
The Woodlands Running Club has no affiliation with The Woodlands Marathon organization. The Woodlands Marathon invites all the junior running clubs in the area to participate in their program but we are not related. If you have a problem with your 2k/5k race registration you should contact The Woodlands Marathon organization directly.

What kind of shoes should I wear?
Good running shoes will save your feet (and the rest of your body) from most injuries. Please wear running shoes to every run. If you’re not sure if your shoes are good ones, ask your coaches. We also recommend shorts and shirts made from wicking material to help keep your sweat from sticking to you.

Do we need to warm up every time we run?
Injuries may result when you don’t warm up adequately before running. As part of our program we will encourage all Juniors to do a warm up, including drills, prior to every workout. If you arrive late and miss the warm ups, we recommend you do some warm up on your own before you can start your run. Stretching is a good idea, but should NEVER happen until you’ve warmed up your muscles. Stretching cold muscles can cause serious harm. So, always do your warm ups and drills before you stretch, or save your stretching for AFTER the workout.

What should I drink and eat?
We recommend a healthy diet for all our Juniors (and of course their parents too). It is recommended that you eat plenty of carbohydrates such as brown rice, pasta and even frozen yogurt. You should also have some good lean proteins like chicken, fish, beans or eggs. It’s a good idea to have a small light snack before your workouts such as fruit or a handful of almonds. And bring a snack for after the run too.
You also need to drink plenty of water. Because you are not running a really long distance, you do not need sports drinks. Stay hydrated!
