Recognizing the importance that physical fitness plays in creating a healthy and successful life, BN Vocational School has expanded their school curriculum to include an emphasis on physical exercise focusing on the sport of running.
On September 24th, in conjunction with Beijing International Group & The Running Crew Ltd, the BN Running Program was officially launched in Beijing at the Beijing Institute of Education High School. Running Crew coach Wen FengLin, an outstanding marathoner, led the inaugural session that saw each student put through a series of measurement tests managed by BIG staff before participating in the running/walking component orchestrated by Coach Wen.
Each Saturday afternoon throughout each academic semester 110 BN students will travel to exciting locations throughout Beijing to engage in a specially designed three-hour class that includes stretching, running and friendly competition based upon competency levels.
In addition to the emphasis on increased physical fitness and enjoying the sports of running, BN hopes to use the program to insure that each student scores highly on the China National Student Physical Fitness Test.
