REGISTRATION FOR SPRING 2017 IS FULL!
What: A 5-week, fun-focused race series for kids aged Pre-K through 8th grade. Kids Run Durham introduces children to running in an organized setting in the form of a loosely structured “track meet” that allows participants to explore distances ranging from 100 meters to 1 mile. Children will be assigned a distance for the first session based on their age, but all are welcome and encouraged to participate in any other distances as well. Each session also features a group dynamic warm up, as well as a local expert guest speaker. Guest speakers address a variety of topics relevant to health, wellness, and running such as physical activity, nutrition, sportsmanship, and proper running etiquette.
