ADVENTURE RUNNING KIDS® is an adventure running program for kids aged 6-12 that builds stronger, faster and smarter runners and an appreciation of the environment. ADVENTURE RUNNING KIDS® combines trail running, navigation, cross country running and obstacles into a fun and muddy eco-adventure that also teaches problem solving skills that are valuable in training, racing and life.
ADVENTURE RUNNING KIDS® (ARK) is a 12-week adventure running program grounded on the four FUNdamentals of adventure running: Endurance, Agility, Speed, and Navigation. Each week kids participate in fun and energetic activities designed around two of these FUNdamentals cycling through all four activities once every two weeks. ARK activities include obstacle courses, capture the flag, hill running, the very popular mud run, and more. The 12-week adventure culminates with a fun weeknight adventure running race and the weekend ARK FEST where kids get to meet participants from ARK locations throughout the Golden Horseshoe.
