Armed Forces Kids Run
May 18 @ 9:00 AM
We’re celebrating Armed Forces Day in a healthy way, and your kids can take part! Join us on Saturday, 18 May for America’s Armed Forces Kids’ Run, where military children from across the globe will participate in a fun run to highlight the excitement of running in a real race!
Intended for children ages 5 – 13, The Armed Forces Kids’ Run scales race distances back so even younger children can enjoy running. Children ages 5-6 will run 1/2 mile, ages 7-8 will run 1 mile, and children ages 9 and over will run 2 miles. The races will take place at the Krueger Recreation Area trails, directly across from the back side of the Fitness Center. Registration begins at 9:45 a.m. and the run will start promptly at 10 a.m. Water, sports drinks and fruit will be available. There is NO COST to the race, but the first 25 participants to register online by 17 May at http://americaskidsrun.org/events_app.php will receive a free t-shirt.
