Kilometer Kids Fun Run

Join Atlanta Track Club and members of its youth running program, Kilometer Kids, for our fall season's kickoff event on Wednesday, September 28 at 5:00 p.m (please note this event has an earlier start to accommodate the high school events).  Atlanta Track Club is proud to partner with Atlanta Public Schools for its second annual Kilometer Kids Cross Country One-Mile Fun Run at Grant Park Recreational Center*. 

The evening will kick off in a fun and exciting way with Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids Cross Country One Mile Fun Run at 5:00p.m. This is a free, (open to the public) fun run for kids ages 7 to 14 and features an exciting course through beautiful Grant Park with varying terrain, including surfaces of grass, roads, dirt, steep up hills and down hills and possibly standing water or mud. The course will be lined with Atlanta Track Club volunteers, parents and Kilometer Kids coaches encouraging the kids as they make their way to the finish line. We will also host a 50m Dash for kids age 6 and under that will start mid-field and finish in the same finish chute as the older athletes.  All participants in the One-Mile and 50m Dash will receive a finisher's medal. 

Stick around afterwards and cheer on several Atlanta Public High Schools as their boys & girls teams compete over the three mile cross country course. View course map Here

Registration is available online through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, and race day registration is available at the event beginning at 4:00 p.m.  Current 2016 Kilometer Kids Fall program participants that have registered for the program season and are attending with your coach as part of a team, do not need to register for the individual Fun Runs.

*PLEASE NOTE: The Cross Country Fun Run in Grant Park starts and finishes in a different section of the park than our regular Grant Park runs.
