For JS & K, Ms. Yaegashi will be collecting the fees in the Breezeway during the drop-offs (please put the money in the plastic bag labeled with your child's name and class).
First 100 students, who have created LIVERUN accounts and reserved the session, bringing donation will get the Fun Run wristbands which can be worn to school until the event!
6. Do A Test Run
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO DO A TEST RUN SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THE ACTUAL EVENT.
Try other free session and make sure that you can hear the live broadcast and the distance increases.
If the distance stays 0.00 even though you have run/walked, go to settings on your smartphone and provide GPS access to LIVERUN app.
7. On the day of the Fun Run...
From LIVERUN App, scroll to Saturday 4/24 tap the ISSH Fun Run at 09:10 about 10 minutes before the time (i.e. 9am)
Tap “Start Listening” (the icon will be orange) to start listening to the live session.
You will answer an icebreaker question, hear safety & technical rules, and do stretching -- then the MC will start the countdown for the run.
Safety Rules to Always Follow:
Make sure to follow all traffic laws.
Session will start and end on the MC's countdown, not on your smartphone. Do not look at the screen while running.
Stay hydrated, make sure you drink water before.
Try to avoid running in a small loop like a 400 meter track. GPS has trouble keeping accurate distance traveled.
If for some reason you cannot hear the live broadcast, end and restart the app (the app will remember distance ran).
Keep Wifi off in the settings. When smartphone tries to catch free Wifi, voice streaming could stop.
