KIDS WHIZZ

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

Why are there not more child­friendly races in the UK? I run reg­u­larly with my four chil­dren and would love to take part in races with them. I'm tak­ing my 11-yearold son to Florida in Fe­bru­ary for the Dis­ney Princess Half Marathon Week­end. He's do­ing the 5K and 10K races and in train­ing has run 13km. Chil­dren en­joy tak­ing part in races and are more than ca­pa­ble. Maybe more child-friendly events would be a way to help beat the coun­try’s obe­sity cri­sis.
