Kids Run SARR is a New Running Program for Kids
Kids Run SARR (KRS) is off to a great start in 2016. This summer, the kids had some wild fun with our Intro to Running program. While learning proper form, breathing, and pace setting, the kids were able to also explore the benefits of running with a SARR team. They were also able to see their improvements over the summer with our bi-weekly timed trials. From Water Balloon running activities to mock Olympic trials to Saturday morning yoga-these kids did it all in 10 weeks! Keep an eye out for some of the team when we bring KRS to the SARR Full/Half Marathon Training Program! Kids Run SARR will soon open registration for an 8-week 10k training program specifically geared toward youth runners, along with meet-ups to ensure proper training. The team will be running the San Antonio Rock n Roll 10k
We currently offer two different training programs:
- Kids Run SARR Intro to Running - is a fun, 10-week run program geared toward helping 6-13 year old kid's achieve consistent running habits. It will introduce pacing, both competitive and non-competitive exercises, Yoga and other overall wellness practices. It is generally offered in the summer. It consists of two training sessions per week
- Kids Run SARR 10K Training - is designed to take 10-14 year old kids who can already run 2 miles without stopping up to running a 10K. It is a 8 - week program which generally meets twice a week in the fall. The target 10K race is the San Antonio Rock and Roll 10K generally held in early December.
