Log your last Y Kids mile at the 1 Mile Fun Run. After the run/walk, the celebration will kick-off with awards for Y Kids participants, family activities, inflatables for the kids and so much more! We hope you will encourage children in your life to participate in Y Kids Run. It is important to develop healthy and active lifestyle habits in children at a young age so that they will be accustomed to these behaviors and maintain them in the future. Even if your child has not been enrolled in the program throughout the year it’s not too late for them to join in the fun. Bring them out to this event and they can log their first Y Kids mile at our Fun Run. We hope to see you at the first annual Y Kids Run Celebration day!

Each participant will receive an award.

What is Y Kids Run?      

Fleet Feet Sports has teamed up with the YMCA of Coastal Georgia to launch "Y Kids Run", a FREE program designed to encourage a healthy future for today's youth. This program is designed to assist local YMCA's and schools in keeping kids moving all year long. Children (K-5th grade) will run/walk throughout the school year and log their mileage throughout the duration of the program.

How does Y Kids Run work?      

Children will keep a personal log to document their progress. To assist kids in reaching their goal, they will be able to log miles from any foot race, sports practice, PE class, after school activity, or fun activity at home with family and friends. Parents, teachers, or an additional adult supervisor will sign off on the logs to verify the child's participation. The logs will be collected and at the end of the program, the YMCA will announce the total mileage logged by all participants! All logs are printable via the YMCA website.

How to Register?      

Y Kids Run is a FREE program with multiple ways to register and participate! YMCA members/non-members can print off the registration form and return it to any YMCA of Coastal Georgia location or to Fleet Feet Sports Savannah.
