Kids Run Free – On a mission to get kids moving!

Join Kids Run Free as they become the hosts of the Kids Zone at the National Running Show.

The kid’s zone will be divided in to four zones each with a different activity game for you to play. This is not just for the kids; parents should be ready to get involved too.

Kids Run Free believes in the power of running to get children happier, healthier and more confident. To achieve this they provide two fully funded, sustainable running programmes for toddlers to teens in both schools and parks across the UK.

Stop by, have some fun and learn more about Kids Run Free and their programmes.

Kids Run Free programmes are fully funded providing all children, regardless of ability, the opportunity to set goals, work hard and achieve them.

Using our five pillars of – Goal setting, Tracking, Role-modelling, Celebrating and Rewarding children are inspired to run further than they ever thought possible.

Park Kids is our volunteer lead community running programme across the UK where children and their parents run together for fun in a safe space. Events are fully inclusive and build stamina and confidence supporting children and their families to move onto other bigger challenge’s when the time is right.

Marathon Kids is our exciting fully funded and SEND friendly schools programme, giving primary school children the opportunity to run or walk up to four marathons over the academic year.
