UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s brings new kids running series to Westlake

If you are looking for a way to get the kids up and moving and out from behind a screen this spring, the Healthy Kids Running Series may be the answer. The Healthy Kids Running Series is a five-week running program in the spring and fall for kids from Pre-K to eighth grade. Each Race Series takes place once a week and offers age appropriate running events including the 50-yard dash and the 1/4-mile, 1/2-mile and one-mile run.

Kids compete each week of the Series for a chance to earn points and at the end of the Series the top boy and girl with the most points in their respective age division receive a trophy. It doesn't matter how fast or slow they run because all participants receive a T-shirt, medal and gift bag for their achievements. Start a lifelong love of running while helping kids adopt a healthy and active lifestyle, increase their self-esteem, and make new friends!

Races take place at Westlake Recreation Center, 28955 Hilliard Blvd. on Sundays, April 10, 17 and 24 and May 1 and 8 at 2:00 p.m. Cost is $35 for the Series.
