Kids Run for Fun

Friday Nights May 31 - August 9, 2019



Children ages 1-12 are invited to run on Friday evenings during the summer at Parkside Junior High School. This family program is non-competitive and intended to help teach kids that exercising and running can be fun. Children will be grouped according to age with the younger ones (2 and under) running first (parents may run with young kids). Age groups with many children will run in several "heats" to avoid congestion and accidents.

Check in starts at 5:30 pm and the first run begins promptly at 6:00 pm.

Ask questions and share your stories and photos on our Facebook page! If you have additional questions, would like to volunteer or are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact program director, Joe Brannan.
