Ring In The New Year With A 1-Mile Fun Run!

by mmak


The 14th KiDS ROCK Nashville Presented by YMCA of Middle Tennessee is back this spring taking place on Sunday, April 26, 2015 at LP Field. Children are already in high gear with their training throughout the school year. We are looking forward for all to complete the final 1-Mile race come this spring.

Race day is the culmination of a school-based running program designed to tackle childhood obesity through prevention. The non-timed, non-competitive event has become synonymous with introducing the fun of fitness and running to kids at a time when poor nutrition and a widespread lack of exercise threatens the health of an entire generation.

Join us on April 26, 2015 at 2pm at LP Field. Registration is still available. Register today and let your rockstar shine!
