Starting with the 2019-2020 Running Zone Foundation Race Series, we will be launching our new Running Zone Kids Crew for ages 12 & under!

We are very excited to implement our new kids’ program to encourage kids to get moving. Children 12 years of age and younger that are participating in the race (not the kids fun run) are encouraged to participate in the Running Zone Foundation Kids Crew!
