Healthy Kids Running Series returns to borough with five-week schedule

Fall schedule begins this coming Sunday at Crows Woods.

It’s time again for the Healthy Kids Running Series, fall 2021 edition. Set to begin on Sunday, Sept. 12 and scheduled to run for five weeks through Oct. 10, kids from ages 2 to 14 will have the chance to be outside, with fresh air and exercise, to rediscover the joys of play and to socialize with other like-minded children. 

The races are once per week and offer age appropriate running events including the 50 and 75 yard dashes, the quarter mile, half mile and one-mile run. Kids compete each week for a chance to earn points. At the end of the series, boys and girls who accumulate the most points in their respective distances are awarded trophies. All participants receive a medal on Week 5. 

All races will be held at Crows Woods, 901 E. Atlantic Avenue, beginning at 5 p.m.
