|About||The Healthy Kids Running Series was established in 2009 to combat childhood obesity by providing a fun, motivational and educational atmosphere.|
Established in 2009, the Healthy Kids Running Series was created by Jeff Long, Founder and President of Pattison Sports Group, to provide kids with a positive, educational, and fun experience in the world of running. To combat the increasing rates of child obesity in America, Jeff designed a running program that would motivate kids to be healthy and active and provide a fun environment to improve their self-esteem. Jeff believed the program would encourage kids to adopt a "Get Up and Go" attitude.
The Healthy Kids Running Series is a five week running program for kids from Pre-K to 8th grade. Each Race Series takes place once a week and offers running events such as the 50 yard dash, the 1/4 mile, the 1/2 mile and the one mile run. Kids will compete each week of the Series for a chance to earn points, and at the end of the Series the top boy and girl with the most points in their respective age division will receive a trophy. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you are since all participants will receive a medal and gift bag for their achievements!
Join us as we encourage kids to adopt a healthy and active lifestyle, help increase their self-esteem, and make new friends!
