This program offers children a fun, non-competitive introduction to the sport of running. Held on the 1/4 mile fitness path at Proctor Hospital, these runs are held EVERY MONDAY AT 6PM, beginning May 6 – June 24.
Kids choose to run a 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile or 1 mile event, and are free to run multiple events if they wish. Each participant receives a personalized finisher’s ribbon and refreshments after the run. Runners are grouped together by age to ensure safety.
The weekly entry fee is $2 per child… or $5 for families with 3 or more runners. Registration begins at 5:30pm each Monday.
The IVS Kids Series is conducted by Illinois Valley Striders volunteers and receives financial support from the Strider organization. Proctor Hospital welcomes us to their fitness path and provides juice and cookies each week for the kids.
