Peaceful Playgrounds Jogging/Walking Track

Running and Walking Track

Peaceful Playgrounds new Walking and Running Track is great for getting kids moving and perfect for those days when it is too wet to run out on the field. The track was designed for schools who rarely have the benefit of a designated running space. Some schools have put the track on the perimeter of the blacktop playground and others have added it to a large square on one portion of the playground. It also gives the local community a place to exercise.

Childhood Obesity Intervention

The running track can go around the outside edge of the blacktop or it can form a rectangle around the outside of two basketball courts.

Environmental changes have shown the most promise in changing human behavior. The key to getting both children and adults active is to make an environmental change that is both easy and readily available thus, the Walking and Running Track.  Students and teachers will pass it every day on the way to and from the playground. This inexpensive intervention packs lots of promise for more active children. Teachers can use it as a physical education warm up activity or utilize it during physical fitness testing.  Parents and after-school community organizations can take advantage of it also.
