2nd Recess for Schools, Recreation Sites, & Clubs

2nd Recess is proud to offer curriculum that schools, recreation centers, and clubs can access to bring the program to more sites! The curriculum is comprehensive and allows for a school to use the resources for staff, administrators, parents, and teachers to encourage children of all ages to develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime through running. Every week is outlined with activities that encourage movement and activity with the goal of students completing a major race at the end of the season.


From the 2nd Recess School Curriculum, 2nd Recess can be enjoyed at schools and other sites. The 2nd Recess School Curriculum includes:

  • Weekly practice details and outlines for 30 weeks of practices
  • Adjustable curriculum for different ability levels and ages 4 through 14
  • Motivational topics for discussion at all practices
  • Goal setting exercises
  • Printable handouts to share with participants (including activities and games that can be done at home with the whole family)
  • Templates for all practices and timed runs
  • Information and templates for a school Jog-A-Thon fundraiser
  • Practices can be completed during short recess periods, during physical education classes, or as an after-school program
