SYCAMORE – Healthy Kids Running Series is a national, community-based nonprofit that provides a fun, five-week running program for ages 2 to 14. The program aims to get children active and feel accomplished and lays a foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
The organization is seeking participants for its program in Sycamore. The first of five consecutive Sunday afternoon races will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Sycamore Park District’s Legacy Campus, 480 Airport Road.
Each Healthy Kids Running Series event takes place once a week and offers age-appropriate race distances. Kids compete each week for a chance to earn points, and at the end of the series, the boy and girl with the most points in their respective age division earn a trophy. All participants receive a finishers medal, race bag and Healthy Kids Running Series shirt.
More than 44,000 children participate in more than 200 Healthy Kids Running Series nationwide, according to a news release. The organization was founded in 2009 in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
