The Healthy Kids Running Series is a race designed for kids to enter the running world with a positive, fun, and educational outlook on running. There are 4 different races that you can sign your kids up for: 50 yard dash, 1/4 mile run, 1/2 mile run, and the 1 mile run. All of these different races have certain age groups that are assigned to each. This is a really cool event because no matter what place you come in, you receive an award which boosts kids self-esteem along with them getting some good exercise. The founder of this run, Jeff Long, really wants to get kids out and moving and to have a positive view on running. I think that this is an awesome idea and even though it’s mostly concentrated on the east coast, that it should continue to spread around the country because this is a great idea for kids to get involved and active!
