Although improved fitness is a worthy goal in and of
itself, we believe F.I.T Kids will benefit in ways that
go well beyond conditioning alone. After several weeks
of focused training, participating boys and girls will
have learned in a very concrete manner the
importance of consistent effort,
setting and maintaining a schedule, and proceeding
systematically toward a long-term goal.
Better still, those who stick with the program will be
rewarded on race day with the satisfaction and
self-esteem that comes from having seen their training
plans through to the finish.

Run for just $10 each, or half off the regular race-day
registration of $20. What a great way to promote fitness
