Kids Run Club at Home


We know that it can be difficult to find accessible and affordable ways to keep your children active over the summer. That’s why we developed the Kids Run Club at Home program to provide opportunities for kids to not only be active over the summer, but to also experience to fun and joy of movement.

We’ve created Kids Run Club at Home packages in French and English to guide kids, and hopefully their families, in running over the summer. The packages include three training options (2, 4 or 5 km) and tips for improving running and making it more fun. Participants are encouraged to walk, run or roll in a way that is comfortable for them. Be sure to check out the videos on the Kids Run Club YouTube channel where the Kids Run Club team and special guests share their top tips to help participants of all abilities experience success.

Kids Run Club at Home is designed to last for eight weeks over the summer and includes three runs each week. With help from their parents, participants will select a running route close to home measuring 250-500 metres that will be repeated depending on the length of the scheduled run. We also recommend using a variety of running routes and locations if possible to keep the running more interesting.

Weekly Themes!

Each week has a theme that families can use to add some extra fun. This might be dressing in red & white to celebrate Canada Day for one of the runs in Week 1 or getting up extra early to do a sunrise run during Week 4. We encourage parents to share images or videos of the summer adventures on the KRC Twitter or Facebook platforms.

Be sure to check out our Let’s Keep Moving #AlphabetActivityChallenge you can use as a warm-up or just to add a little extra movement to your day. Make up your own challenge or select from the high energy videos posted in French and English on the Kids Run Club YouTube page.

Kids Run Club at Home will conclude at the end of the summer with the final run of 2, 4 or 5 km. Participants are encouraged to download a final run bib which they can personalize and a certificate of achievement (English or French) that recognizes their hard work and determination.
