Route 18 Jeep Sponsors Healthy Kids Running Series for Spring 2019

Healthy Kids Running Series East Brunswick NJ

Spring is upon us and it’s time to go back outside & play. And what healthier way is there to have fun than to go for a run?

That’s part of the reason why we’re once again sponsoring the Healthy Kids Running Series! We know that watching TV and playing video games can be fun activities for kids, but it should be balanced with some exercise to promote a healthy lifestyle through a positive, educational & fun experience.

Unlike last year’s series of runs, the events will be occurring at East Brunswick High School, located at 380 Cranbury Rd. These runs will take place on the following Sundays:

  • April 28, 2019 (Orthodox Easter)
  • May 5, 2019 (Cinco De Mayo)
  • May 12, 2019 (Mother’s Day)
  • May 19, 2019
  • June 2, 2019

Each Healthy Kids Running Series event goes from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. After registering, you can pick up your race bag on the Wednesday before the first run (April 24th) from 4 to 7 pm at Crossfit Barbending (3 Joanna Ct, Suite E) in East Brunswick.

There are 6 different events to choose from, depending on the child’s age or grade level that cost $35 per child:

  • 50 Yard Dash for children ages 2 & 3 years old

A medal will be given out to all runners after Week 5 of the series. There will also be points tallied each week and trophies given out to runners with the most points after the final race.

The previous Healthy Kids Running Series events we’ve sponsored have been a lot of fun for everyone involved. We hope to see you & your family there! And please take note that no run will take place on Memorial Day Weekend.
