Ready, Set, Run! is a character-building running program that trains kids ages 8-13 to participate in a 5k run. This curriculum-based program equips kids with the physical training and goal-setting mentality needed to accomplish their running goals. Issues like enhancing confidence and self-esteem, respecting authority, dealing with peer pressure and fueling their bodies through proper nutrition are covered during the 12-week session. Above all, kids have a blast seeing what they are capable of achieving!
Ready, Set, Run began as an idea in 2009 and much research, love, and passion has been poured in to get it up & running. The response from our members has been phenomenal! We began piloting the program in Spring 2011 and look forward to all of the lives we might have the chance to impact in the future.

"My daughter... LOVES Ready, Set, Run! She is fond of the coaches, enjoys the other children, and is feeling great about her running. She has been noticing her muscles "growing" and is excited to go every time. It's been a great self-esteem builder for her, in addition to being great exercise. We are really hoping you decide to offer this again next year." - RSR parent
