Healthy Kids Running Series

The Healthy Kids Running Series (HKRS) is a five week running program in the spring and fall for kids ages 3-14. Founded in the Greater Philadelphia region, HKRS has grown to a national program hosting 50 race series in 17 states. 

To combat the increasing rates of child obesity in America, HKRS provides kids with a positive, educational, and fun experience in the world of running, motivates kids to be healthy and adopt a “Get Up and Go” attitude.

We have been given an opportunity from HKRS to participate in this event. The first (10 kids) dads to RSVP to this event will receive (1) FREE entry into the event, a $35 value!. 

My kids, ages 3, 6, and 9 will all be participating in this race in Wayne, PA. The series run five weeks offering age appropriate running events including the 50 yard dash, the 1/4 mile, the 1/2 mile and the one mile run.  Alternate dates for running in the series  are Sundays in April on the 13th and 27th and May 4th and 11th. 

It doesn’t matter how fast or slow kids run. Each and every participant receives a medal and gift bag for his or her achievement. Kids compete each week for a chance to earn points with the top boy and girl with the most points in their respective age division receive a trophy.

    The series is a great event to get your kids active and participating in running. My kids had an awesome time and I was so proud of them!

    The organizers suggest that if you haven't picked up your race bag, to arrive 30 minutes early so they can start the race promptly at 4pm.
