Knoxville Youth Runs (KYR) is a joint program of the Community Schools Program/Great Schools Partnership and the Knoxville Track Club (KTC) along with the Knox County elementary and middle schools. Program FUNdamentals are derived from the national program, Kids Run the Nation, sponsored by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).

The emphasis of the K-5 and middle school programs is on participation and developing a healthy lifestyle and love for the sport of running.

Knoxville Youth Runs (KYR) meets twice per week after-school for 8 weeks. KTC currently works with schools within the Community Schools Program/Great Schools Partnership including Christenberry Elementary, Norwood Elementary, Beaumont Magnet School, and Northwest Middle School. The program is expected to expand again in 2018.

There is no charge to students or schools who participate in the KYR program.
