HEALTHY KIDS RUNNING SERIES TO OFFER VIRTUAL RACE SERIES TO FURTHER HELP CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMLIES MAINTAIN AN ACTIVE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

 

FIRST RACE SET FOR WEEKEND OF APRIL 17

 

In an effort to help families come together during these difficult and challenging times, 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 converting its outdoor five-week spring Series into a virtual Series beginning on Friday, April 17 at HealthyKidsRunningSeries.org.

 

“As families navigate through this new norm of social distancing, we want to encourage kids to lead an active healthy lifestyle. Whether it’s running in their yard or around the block, we want kids to continue to be active while avoiding potential contact with the COVID-19,” said Jeff Long, Founder, Healthy Kids Running Series. “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. This is a unique opportunity to be connected and engaged with participants while separate.”

 

“When new parameters were put in place limiting interaction for our participants, and with more families relying on technology, we felt it was in our best interest to keep our kids engaged and offer this virtual Series,” said Long. “Through our virtual Series, we teach kids effort, perseverance, persistence, sportsmanship, independence and grit. We will show kids and their parents how to be active while staying at home.”

 

The Healthy Kids Running Virtual Series is a five-week program beginning on Friday, April 17 with age-appropriate race distances. Kids compete each week on a course of their choosing, and at the end of the Series, when appropriate, participants will be invited to a “Medal & T-Shirt Pickup” event. Registration is $35 for the virtual five-week Series.

 

The Healthy Kids Running Series impacts more than 60,000 youth runners in more than 300 communities across the United States. Healthy Kids Running Series engages communities and families by providing an inclusive youth running experience, inspiring kids to believe in themselves and lead active healthy lifestyles.
