Introducing kids to the enjoyment of running at a young age is an exciting way to help them develop an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health.  Designed to allow every runner to recognize their strengths, the Kids on the Run curriculum inspires them to define their goals.  Throughout the season, the kids make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate their achievements.

Runners have the opportunity to take part in a local 5K race as a team.  These events are the culminating experience of the program.  Completing the 5K gives them a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment as well as a framework for setting and achieving goals.  Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when kids realize that hard work and perseverance pay off.

Season race:  Race the Landing 5k run on June 8th 2017 (Race fees NOT included)

Ages

The program will be divided into two running groups (ages 6—9 and 10 & up) with separate curriculum to foster age-appropriate development.
