You've got a few days left to save even more on a crazy affordable fall athletic program for the kiddos. A program that only takes place once a week, for one hour on Sunday afternoons locally here in Southwick. Interested? Me too!
The Southwick program of The Healthy Kids Running Series will be held on five Sunday afternoons from 4-5 p.m. at Powder Mill Middle School at 95 Powder Mill Road from September 8 through October 6. It's open to kids in grades Pre-K through eighth. Cost is only $40 for the five week session and that price includes a t-shirt and a race medal for all participants. If you sign up by Sunday, August 18, the cost is only $35/child!
The Healthy Kids Running Series has been running (literally) for 10 years with groups in 35 states. This is the second season locally here in Southwick -- their spring 2019 session had nearly 200 participants!
The program was created in 2009 by Jeff Long, founder and president of Pattison Sports Group to motivate kids to lead a healthy and active lifestyle through a positive introduction to the world of running.
So run over to the registration page today and get your kiddos signed up before this deal expires. If you register by 11:59 p.m. on August 18, 2019 you'll save $5 off the already affordable price of $40/child so your kiddos can run for only $35 this session.
Age group races are as follows:
Pre-K (ages 2 & 3) run a 50 yard dash
Pre-K (ages 4 & 5) run a 75 yard dash
Kids in kindergarten & first grade run 1/4 mile
Kids in second & third grade run 1/2 mile
Kids in fourth through eighth grade run 1 mile
Participants compete each week for a chance to earn points. At the end of the series boys and girls who accumulate the most points in their respective distances are awarded trophies. All participants receive a medal on Week 5.
I'm excited for my girls to participate because it's a beautiful time of year to be outside, I love the low commitment of one hour per week on a Sunday afternoon, and I love that it's all ages together as a group but separated off for their own races. See you at the track!
