The CENTER FOR CHILDREN’S RUNNING offers direction to teachers, coaches, recreation leaders and parents on how to structure their children's running program so that children will get the most out of their running experience and want to continue running. It discusses how to provide a safe, age-appropriate and enriching environment for children; how to keep them motivated; what is healthy for children and what is not; how to organize kids runs; and how to keep children coming back for more. It is not an alternative to existing programs, but a means to make those programs even better.
