History of RunFit:
RunFit before and after school running program launched in the spring of 2006 as a bold joint initiative aimed at curbing the growing epidemic of childhood obesity by creating a running program for children at after-school (or before school) programs across New Mexico.
RunFit is designed to help youth of all sizes, fitness, and ability levels utilize the discipline of running to improve health, build character and uplift the spirit. After-school programs such as RunFit play a vital role in the lives of our communities by keeping kids’ safe, creating healthy habits, and helping working families.
RunFit is a fun, free, and intensive program that motivates and trains elementary school students to run one mile to 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) without stopping through active participation on an after-school (or before school) running team. Participants learn to set and achieve challenging personal goals and are awarded incentives for attendance and improvement, culminating in local running events.
