WHY KIDS SHOULD START RUNNING?

According to Dr Adam Carey, fitness expert and GO Run For Fun Foundation (GRFF) spokesman, running has significant benefits for children.

“Running gets children outdoors, builds strong bodies, increases energy and is instrumental in maintaining a healthy body weight. As with any exercise, running can boost a child’s self-esteem and confidence, children get smarter as new brain cells created and improve memory and enhance mood.” says Dr. Carey.

“Well-organised running events help to encourage children to prepare themselves, to give it their best on the day and to make it a memorable achievement.
“If your child is new to running, you should guide them slowly get involved in running by one or two short sessions a week and build up slowly.”
