Fit Kids Club Series
Attention kids (14 years old and younger) – get ready and start conditioning! BLEND is kicking off its 4th annual Fit Kids Club Series at the Earth Day Run Events on Friday, April 19, 2013 at St. Cloud State University. The fun begins with the BLEND Kids Health & Fitness Expo at Halenback Hall (2 p.m.) and then finishes with the BLEND 1K Youth Run (6 p.m.). The BLEND 1K Youth Run is the first of 18 endorsed races in this year’s Fit Kids Club Series. Pre-registration is required for this race event.
The BLEND Fit Kids Club Series provides opportunities and incentives for youth to remain active throughout the summer. Rather than concentrating on only one event, BLEND works collaboratively with race planners to encourage participation in many events from April through October. Fit Kids Club Series participation is FREE and registration is not required with BLEND. However, registration is required to take part in each of the endorsed race events. Fees may vary.
