Getting Started

Are your kids ready to start running? Do they ask if they can go with you when they see you lace up your running shoes?  Below are a few suggestions to keep in mind to make your running experience enjoyable for the whole family.

The Four F’s of Running with Kids:
1. Fun. Keep it fun!
2. Follow their lead. Let your child decide what they want running to be. Maybe they will want to race and maybe they just want running to be about spending time together or playing a game.
3. Foster a love for running. Model a love for running and help keep running positive so your child grows to love running too.
4. Family friendly. Try to find ways to include the whole family in running as a way to promote family fitness and bonding.
