Train With Us



The FUNdamentals of our Program
Our program promotes the Road Runners Club of America’s guidelines for youth running. These guidelines are based on developmental principles that guide training and racing for young distance runners. Our program is designed for kindergarten through eighth grade. Minimum age to participate is 5 years old.
  • Emphasize good technique
  • Focus on participation and self-improvement
  • Consider individual differences
  • Limit systematic training and competition before puberty
  • Increase running workload gradually
  • Participate in age appropriate running events
Running in a kids’ fun run or youth track event can be a great experience for kids. For children 5 and under focus on “dash” events that range from a few yards to one mile. For children 5 and over, kids fun runs that are a ½ to 2 miles long may be considered, but allow for a combination of running and walking. Children ages 6 and over may want to participate in a 5K run/walk.  Be sure to allow for walking in a 5K and let them go at their own pace.  Children ages 13 to 15 and older may want to participate in a 10K to half marathon event. Children 18 and older may want to participate in a marathon or further distance.  These are general guidelines and the distance a child can physically and emotionally tolerate will depend on the individual, however longer distances (10K and over) should wait until after puberty.

What People Are Saying…

“Thank you to all of the coaches for another GREAT season. It is truly a great program for kids that are merely “interested” in running, kids that really want to get into competitive running and all of the kids in the program that are in between.”

“This is one of the best programs that my daughter has participated in. She is improving and is developing a love for running. Most importantly, she’s having FUN and is giving and receiving support and encouragement from new friends which is vitally important to a growing kid. Thank you SO MUCH for all that you have done to put this program together.”

“I think you are doing a great job, not only helping to develop a life long sport, but also by making this part of a community effort. Kudos for y’all!”

“We can’t thank you enough! You turned our non-competitive/athletic child into a child who enjoys running! We love the positive climate and encouragement from the coaches. What an awesome program!”

“Finally, a non-competitive program where kids of all ages and genders can participate together! Brambleton Kids Run the Nation fills a tremendous need in our area. The coaches do more than just have the kids run…they teach them how to run for the best results. And, they make it fun.”
