Healthy Kids Running Series is a national, community-based non-profit that provides a fun, inclusive five-week running series for ages 2-14, designed for kids to get active, feel accomplished and lay the foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
HKRS is a national organization based in PA, with over 250 race locations across the country. The Cleveland series began in 2016 and has increased in attendance each year. In Spring 2019 we had over 400 children join in the fun! Each week of the 5-week program, children run a distance based on their age (2yrs to 14yrs), with the goal of improving their own performance, as well as building a love of exercise. During the last week, we hold a parent mile where the kids get to encourage their parents to do the best they can. Along with running, we have other activities and special guests, such as face painting and local mascots. We encourage parents, grandparents, friends, teachers, etc to come outdoors to cheer on their kids and enjoy some family fun at a great local park.
