Kids Run Durham

PLEASE NOTE: Fall 2020 Kids Run Durham registration will only be open to participants who previously registered for the Spring 2020 session that was canceled due to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding!

A 5-week, fun-focused race series for kids aged 4-12 years ($45). Kids Run Durham introduces children to running in an organized setting in the form of a loosely structured “track meet” that allows participants to explore distances ranging from 100 meters to 1 mile. Children will be assigned a distance for the first session based on their age, but all are welcome and encouraged to participate in any other distances as well. Each session also features a group dynamic warm up, as well as a local expert guest speaker. Guest speakers address a variety of topics relevant to health, wellness, and running such as physical activity, nutrition, sportsmanship, and proper running etiquette.
