Kilometer Kids is Atlanta Track Club's oldest and largest youth running program! The free, game-based curriculum is designed to teach kids 5-14 about goal setting, healthy habits, respect, and community building, all through exposing them to the sport of running. Over the course of the 11 week season, the goal for every Kilometer Kid is to run 26.2 miles or the equivalent of a marathon. There is no fee to participate, and the program is for all elementary and middle school students regardless of running ability or experience. As a noncompetitive program, being a Kilometer Kid is not about running the fastest or winning the race. Instead it's all about working hard, being kind and having fun while becoming more physically active, being a part of a team and finding joy in the process.
