...spend quality time running and making memories with family and friends
...cross the finish line of the Crystal Lake Half Marathon!?
Kids Run This Town is designed to get your elementary schooler outside, in the fresh air and enjoy running! Over the course of 5 weeks, your child will log 12 miles at home with the supervision of Mom or Dad (or anyone who wants to run with them). They will meet up at Smith Physical Therapy and Running Academy for two fun runs - meet the coaches, get to know their peers, engage in fun running activities, and learn some of the basics of running! Then, on September 5th, they will run the final mile of the Crystal Lake Half Marathon and receive their official race medal!
