Kids Run The Nation

A RRCA Vision For A Locally Managed Youth Running Program



In 1986, in response to the growing national concern for children’s health status in the United States, the RRCA launched its children’s running program.  These materials were sought after resources for over two decades with the RRCA circulating thousands of copies of the materials.  In 2008, the RRCA introduced the revised kids’ running materials, now known as the RRCA: Kids Run the Nation Program®.

The Kids Run the Nation Program is a gender inclusive, multi-week, turnkey, youth running program designed to meet the physical activity goals outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.  The WRRC and volunteer coaches apply the RRCA’s vision is to realize a locally managed, youth running programs for grade school kids in the New Hanover county area.

For more information on the local program for 2016 please contact Billy Block (wbb@krtnilm.org) or any WRRC Board member.
