Kids Run the Nation is a gender inclusive, multi-week, turnkey, youth running program designed to meet the physical activity goals outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The program can also be modified to better serve older grades. Through this program, the RRCA’s vision is to help establish locally managed, youth running programs in every grade school in America.

The Kids Run the Nation program is designed to take place over the course of ten weeks, meeting multiple times each week. The emphasis of this program is on participation and developing a healthy lifestyle as opposed to being a competitive running program. The curriculum includes lessons on running form, pacing, goal setting, nutrition, energy balance, safety, running in an event, and more, and should be supplemented by other resources and activities as appropriate.
