Ready, Set, Run!


READY, SET, RUN! is a character-building, curriculum-based running program created by the National Alliance for Youth Sports.  The program that equips boys & girls ages 8-13 with the physical training and goal-setting mentality needed to accomplish any goal they may set in life. 

This 12-week program addresses issues like confidence and self-esteem, respecting authority, dealing with peer pressure and fueling their bodies through proper nutrition. Above all, kids have a blast seeing what they are capable of achieving, including a 5K run upon completion of the program!  This year we’ll once again be running the GREAT CAKE RACE* at Keeneland on May 5! 

*NOTE:  Participants will be registered for the race as part of the program.  Parents or family members who would like to run with their child should register at the race link above.
