Kids Run Durham

Dates & registration information for SPRING 2022 will be posted shortly! 

Sundays, October 3 – October 31, 2021 @ Northgate Park @ 3:00-5:00pm

A 5-week, fun-focused running program for kids aged 4-12 years.

Kids Run Durham introduces kids 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. Participants will receive a personalized race bib, finishing time each week, and a custom Kids Run Durham tee!

Each session 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 form.
