NAYS Promoting Ready, Set, Run! Program for Children

Apr 22, 2013

The National Alliance for Youth Sports, an advocacy organization for creating positive sports experiences for children, has announced its endorsement of a children’s recreational running program.

Ready, Set, Run! is a character-building running program that trains kids ages 8-13 to participate in a 5Krun. 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.
