Kids Run Club May Update: 'Virtual' program going strong

Virtual Kids Run Club Program

With all sports and activities including Active SWV’s Kids Run Club program cancelled, we’ve had to find creative ways to get kids active these days! The ‘Virtual’ edition of the Kids Run Club program allows kids to be active safely from home, and then log their activity on a shared online platform to stay connected to the Kids Run Club community. Since the Virtual Club officially kicked-off on April 13th, 68 kids have registered for the free six-week program and have been logging their activity as they go.

We’ve been seeing kids getting active with treadmill runs, outside runs, bike rides, hikes in the woods, family tag, trampoline-ing, nerf wars, yoga, walking, Cornhole, and more – and that’s only in the first week! Off to the left is William from Clear Fork Elementary doing his half-mile running workout.

Kids Run Clubs usually have a ‘Fun Run’ event at the end of the program to celebrate the hard work everyone put in throughout the season, and this year that event is going Virtual too. The free Virtual Regional Fun Run event has a kids 1-mile dash and a community 5k walk/run option, and anyone is welcome to sign up and participate! In addition to the Kids Run Club participants, 47 others are registered to compete in the the virtual 5k event and have begun logging their training runs and final 5k times on the online Virtual event platform.

Can I still sign up?

Yes! Enrollment will remain open for the duration of the Virtual Kids Run Club program, so children can register any time and start logging their activity. The same goes for the Virtual Regional Fun Fun – anyone may register at any time and log their 5k time before the event is over May 24th.
