Healthy Kids Running Series in the South Hills/Jefferson Hills announces that its fall 2017 series registration is now open for the program beginning September 17, 2017.

Healthy Kids Running Series (HKRS) is thrilled to debut this fall for its first season at Andrew Reilly Memorial Park (885 Park) in Jefferson Hills. While new to the South Hills, the HKRS program hosted over 20,000 children nationally in 2016! The program is open to the public--you do NOT need to be a Jefferson Hills resident to participate!

HKRS is a five-week, nonprofit youth running program designed to combat childhood obesity while providing children with a positive, educational and fun introduction in the world of running. The divisions and race distances are as follows:

  • Pre-Kindergarten 2 – 3-year-olds - 50 Yard Dash
  • Pre-Kindergarten 4 – 5-year-olds -75 Yard Dash
  • Kindergarten & 1st Grade - ¼ Mile
  • 2nd & 3rd Grade - ½ Mile
  • 4th & 5th Grade - 1 Mile
  • 6th - 8th Grade - 1 Mile

“The Healthy Kids Running Series is all about having fun and motivating kids to be active! Our goal is to provide a fun and positive experience for every participant and see them improve over the five weeks,” said Jeff Long, founder and president.

At the completion of the series, each participant receives a medal and trophies will be awarded based on total points to the top boy and girl in each age group. All runners registered for the five-week program will receive a race-bag and HKRS tech shirt. The series provides participants with a fun learning experience, which includes living an active lifestyle, dedication and goal setting.
