Bull City Running Co. proudly presents Kids Run Durham, a 5-week fun run-focused program for kids ages Pre-K through 8th Grade. Join us Sunday afternoons at 3:30pm at Northgate Park for our age appropriate “race series” to build healthy lifestyle habits, self esteem, character development, and good old fashion playing-outside fun!
What: A 5-week, fun-focused race series for kids aged Pre-K (4 yrs old) 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.
