LOUD Kicks Off New Youth Running Program

We are excited to introduce an after-school youth running program to B.T. Washington Elementary School beginning on 15 September during the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) National Run@School and Run@Work day. NOTE: Our program start was delayed until 6 October due to Hurricane Irma. 

Our program will use lessons, running activities, and instructional materials developed by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) specifically for young runners to introduce them to running and make the sport a part of their healthy lifestyle.

Kids Run the Nation is a gender inclusive, multi-week, youth running program designed to meet the physical activity goals outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. Through this program, the RRCA’s vision is to help establish locally managed, youth running programs in every elementary, middle, and high school in the country, including B.T. Washington Elementary!

There is no fee for the children to participate in this program which will be funded by LOUD Runners. Every child that participates will receive a t-shirt, snacks, supplies, and a finisher’s medal after completing their race.

You can help us fund this program by donating below or buy purchasing kids running gear from our store.
