Get the kids running
Running is becoming a hobby and a way of bonding for many Maryland families, as more kids become inspired by their running parents.
In the last decade, family friendly races have become more and more prevalent all over Maryland — featuring fun activities or shorter fun runs geared toward kids. And running clinics have been popping up all over the region with kids in mind.
“[Running] is a great activity for families to do together and we want to start kids at an early age running and challenging themselves, so it’s instilled in them and a part of their lifestyle,” says Noelle Tarr, marketing director for Fleet Feet Annapolis.
