    • The NXT GEN Road Runners Club focuses on children in the community and teaches them a sport we all love...running!


      Training is based on The Road Runners Club of America's youth program, Kids Run the Nation.


      The Road Runners Club of America launched its youth running curriculum in 1986 in response to the growing concern for children’s health in the United States.


      Kids Run the Nation is a gender inclusive, multi-week, youth running program designed to meet the physical activity goals outlined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for children in kindergarten through sixth grade.


      The Road Runners Club of America promotes the following guidelines for youth running. These guidelines are based on the developmental principles that guide training and racing for young distance runners outlined in the book Training for Young Distance Runners written by Larry Greene, PhD and Russ Pate, PhD.
