Running as a family!

Running is a fitness activity that the whole family can get involved in. Unlike any other sports, running activities can accommodate any fitness level or ability. You can make it work for families of all ages. Read on to find out just some of the benefits of running as a family.

It’s good for the mind and body

Running does wonders for the body by strengthening your bones and muscles, exercising your lungs, and boosting the immune system. Living an active lifestyle also makes you more mentally alert, which means kids who are active also tend to be active learners.

It’s the PERFECT FAMILY ACTIVITY

Running together is a great way of encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle whilst having quality family time. Working as a family towards a shared goal and celebrating your achievements will bring everyone closer together.

YOU CAN START SMALL

If you’re new to running and are looking to start out easy, running small short distances with your kids can help your motivation stay high.

WARM-UP WITH THE KIDS

If you’re taking on one of your longer runs, why not warm up with your kids? Have some fun, jump around, dance or skip to get the blood plumping, even if it’s just a jog to the end of the street and back, it’s a way of fitting in your daily steps.

tAKE PART IN AN EVENT TOGETHER

Not only will you enjoy the race endorphins as a family, but you’ll also have fun bonding over the memories for weeks to come.

Have FUN
