Now Offering Five-Week, In-Person Fall Race Series To Help Children Maintain An Active Healthy Lifestyle

Healthy Kids Running Series, a national inclusive and fun youth running experience, inspiring kids (ages 2-14) to believe in themselves and lead an active healthy lifestyle, is conducting a safe, five-week in-person fall running Series featuring once-a-week racing at more than 200 locations across the United States.

Registration is now open.

The organization is also looking for community coordinators who would like to host a Series in their neighborhood.

“Our races are always kid-focused with the ultimate goal of teaching children how to be active and healthy while creating meaningful relationships within our community,” said Jeff Long, founder of Healthy Kids Running Series.

The Series is a five-week program with once-a-week races with age-appropriate race distances.

Kids compete each week in their designated age or grade level division.

Every participant will receive a T-Shirt and Medal. Registration starts at $35 for the five-week Series and programming is supported by Stride Rite. 

“We are closely following the guidelines as suggested by the CDC and implementing many new measures to ensure we protect our runners and their families,” said Long. “We are offering our runners and their families a safe experience while teaching kids effort, perseverance, persistence, sportsmanship, independence and grit.”

There is also a virtual option, but running in person is more fun!

The Series is also offering a virtual alternative, the Virtual World Race, a five-week Series for families not yet ready to gather with other families in their neighborhood with all of the same benefits and features as the in-person Series.

This running Series impacts more than 60,000 youth runners in 300+ communities across the United States.

The Series engages communities and families by providing an inclusive youth running experience, inspiring kids to believe in themselves and lead active healthy lifestyles.
