The Southern Arizona Roadrunners has one simple mission in Tucson and Southern Arizona: to promote a healthy and active community. We do this through encouraging those around us to find the joy in running and walking.
Our FitKidz Program offers 100% free programming to any child in our community who wishes to participate. We keep it free, so it is not cost prohibitive to any family. We believe in the importance of offering opportunities for children to experience the fun in fitness and being outdoors. As we all agree, the benefits of running and walking are endless for our physical, mental and social well being. Our hope is that as many youth as possible in our community can experience those benefits.
Targeting children not yet in middle school, the free FitKidz racing series and running camps are designed to promote the love of running as part of a healthy lifestyle. So far over 4,500 kids have crossed a FitKidz race finish line!
