Parents - have you ever noticed that kids sometimes just need to run? We have too. In fact, kids are natural runners. Running is simple, fun, and everyone can do it. That's why this spring we started a youth running club for all kids in the Parkway area. We had over 120 Parkway area children participate! It was so exciting to see the enthusiasm for running among our kids and families!
So we are doing it again this fall. Our goal is to create a community that encourages our kids to love running; an activity that will help them be fit, have fun, and last a lifetime.
- Registration is FREE.
- Open to kids ages 4-12
- We meet on Monday mornings at Billings Field at 8:15 am and Wednesday evenings at West Roxbury High Track at 6:00 pm. You do not have to attend both.
- Our group goals are:
- The Turkey Trot, Saturday November 18th at 11:00 am (1/4 or 1/2 mile sprint at the West Roxbury High Track)
- Walter's Run, December 10th. Kids Fun Run and a 5k.
- Parents feel free to wear your running shoes and have a run (or walk) too! Running is a great activity to do together as a family. No need to stand on the sidelines.
If you wish to participate in our fall program, please register your child for our run club here.
We also could use some help leading our runs. If you are interested in helping out, please Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
