Team up with Kilometer Kids

Atlanta Track Club's Kilometer Kids is a free, game-based running program designed to get kids ages 5-14 active! The Kilometer Kids mission is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle to area youth through a running-based program, empowering children with the knowledge they need to make smart lifestyle choices.

The program launched in 2007 with one location serving 38 kids. Kilometer Kids has grown significantly and now impacts thousands of children each year in the Atlanta region and beyond. The program is funded by Atlanta Track Club, private donations, grants and community partners. Kilometer Kids is an official charity of the AJC Peachtree Road Race.

Contact us to start a team at your school or community organization. Registration for the spring season opens on February 8.

Tailored for the challenges families are facing during the pandemic, see below for more information on what the program contains. Registration for the spring season opens on February 8.
