Kids Run Club at Home

KRC at Home Summer Program

This summer inspire your kids to keep active by inviting them to join our free KRC at Home summer program!

Join us for an eight-week, program that will inspire kids to set running goals, build their endurance and have fun.

Kids can choose from three training goals of 2, 4 or 5 km. Each week has a special theme and participants can enter to win prizes by sharing photos of their running adventures by email or on Facebook or Twitter.

Registered runners who train with us and share pictures of their progress will be entered in a weekly draw to win a KRC hoodie, so make sure to register and start sharing your pics!

At the end of the eight weeks, runners who have completed the program will be entered in a draw to win one of five $150 gift certificates from Aerobics First, a trusted running store and Kids Run Club supporter. Aerobics First will provide virtual fittings and free shipping for winners not based in Halifax.

To participate in the weekly KRC hoodie draws, send you photo entries to info@kidsrunclub.ca or tag us on Twitter using hashtag #KRCatHome.

Running tools

We’ve created KRC at Home packages in French and English to guide families and their kids in running plans. The packages include three training options and tips for improving running and having more fun.

Our KRC reps and special guests will post videos each week on our Facebook page sharing their top tips to help participants of all abilities experience success.

Running schedule

KRC at Home begins the week of July 12 and will last eight weeks. The training programs are available in French and English and include three runs each week.

With help from their parents, kids can select a running route close to home. The routes should be 250 to 500 m long and can be repeated depending on the length of the scheduled run. We recommend using a variety of running routes and locations, if possible, to keep the running more interesting.

KRC at Home will wrap-up the week of August 30, with the final run of 2, 4 or 5 kilometres. 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.
