Programs: The Kids Run the Nation Program is a multi-week, gender neutral, youth running program designed for children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade. The RRCA’s vision is to see a locally managed, youth running program in every grade school in America. The Kids Run the Nation Program Guide is designed to help teachers, coaches, or program directors develop youth running programs that can be implemented as a physical education or classroom wellness curriculum, as a before or after-school program, or as a community-based youth running program. The emphasis of this program is on participation and developing a healthy lifestyle as opposed to being a competitive running program. The Program Guide is a full-color, 40-page educational curriculum divided into eight lesson plans, with a bonus ninth lesson on competitive running. Each lesson plan can be taught during a one-hour class period over an 8-week time frame.

The RRCA’s mission is to promote running as healthy exercise and as a competitive sport and to represent and promote the common interests of its member running clubs, running events, and individual runners through education, leadership, programs and other services.
