CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – Healthy Kids Running Series (HKRS) will debut this spring for its first season at the Cape May County 4H Fairgrounds beginning April 2.

HKRS is a five-week, nonprofit youth running program created by Jeff Long. The program is designed to combat childhood obesity while providing children with a positive, educational and fun introduction in the world of running.

The divisions and race distances are as follows:

Pre-k, 50-yard dash; kindergarten and grade 1, quarter-mile; grades 2 and 3, half-mile; grades 4 and 5, one mile; middle school, 1 mile.

“The Healthy Kids Running Series is all about having fun and motivating kids to be active,” said Long, program founder and president. “Our goal is to provide a fun and positive experience for every participant and see them improve over the five weeks. The support and growth of our series has confirmed our value and mission.”
