Atlanta Track Club is dedicated to inspiring and engaging Atlanta area youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and become active through the sport of running. Together with the community, we are committed to fighting the childhood obesity epidemic. 


Youth Running Series 

The Kilometer Kids Running Series provides children ages 14 and under with 20 events to keep kids moving all year long – 19 of which are free. By providing free entry into a variety of events, we hope to give children more opportunities to experience the fun of running and see people of all ages and abilities model healthy lifestyle choices.

Children can collect a unique piece at each event as they try to complete their own tangram puzzle
