Note: The pilot round of The FitKidz Running Club is full (60 kids).
If you would like to add your child to the waiting list, you can do so here. If they don't make it into this round, those on the waiting list will be the first to know when we (hopefully) do the next round! Thanks for encouraging your kids to be active!
The Southern Arizona Roadrunners would like to introduce the first ever “Fitkidz Running Club.” If you have a child between the ages of 5-12 who is interested in running as a fun activity, come on out!
The Fitkidz Running Club is FREE and will promote and highlight improved skills over a 5-week period, focusing on progress over performance and enjoyment over competition. The kids will start out running intervals of 200 meters and grow the distance each week, culminating in a mile fun run. Each 45-minute session will start with a warm-up, followed by a running activity, and ending with a running game. If this sounds just right for your little runner, join us on Thursday, April 6 for some running fun!
