Before you come to a Kids Run Free event please register each child via our registration page. You will be allocated a Membership Number (this is in the form of a bar code) for each child you register. Please print this off and bring to every event you attend.
On your first event, your child/ren will be given a Race Card for them to collect their stickers and a welcome free gift, please bring the Kids Run Free Race Card along to every event.
The events proceed as follows:
Arrive at 9.15
Warm-ups before the race begins. Listen out for instructions from the race director!
When you hear your child’s group being called, head for the start line.
Get ready…get steady…GO!
At the end of the race, make sure your child’s time is recorded and a sticker fixed to his/her race card (Only one sticker per child will be awarded per event attended)
There will be a Race Director and plenty of volunteers at the events who will always be willing to help out or answer questions.
Keeping the attention of children for long enough to get them sufficiently warmed up can be tricky, so we always follow a set procedure that makes warming up enjoyable as well as effective.
We use a mini-circuit using mini-hurdles, cones and agility ladders that children can take at their own pace. Generally running around and having fun is an ideal way to get kids warmed up without them even realising!
Then we go through a simple aerobics session involving balance, stretching and co-ordination exercises.
Afterwards the children can emulate their running heroes by doing the ‘Mobot’ or ‘Bolt’!
