ARRC Kids Program: (One-Mile Fun Run - ages 12 and under)

Frank St Phillips will continue to direct the Fun Run for our children. Children are the future of running and of our club. If you or a member of your family would be willing to assist Frank, please contact any officer or Frank at the race. The first Children's run is scheduled for April 23rd. The first run will be for practice, training and getting many people registered. Start time is 6:00 p.m.

This program is free, but you are required to fill out a registration form. We prefer you to sign up through this link: Roady Fun Run. The Anderson Road Runners Club is required to carry insurance for all of our organized races. This means we need to have parents sign the waiver. It is also helpful for new families to sign up before Tuesday so we can download any new names and get them printed on each weeks spreadsheets to record their times.  This saves time on Tuesdays before the races. The registration forms will be available before the the Roady fun runs if necessary.

Go to the 'We are Roady' facebook page for the most up-to-date information, including weather cancellations.

Weekly Sponsors: The club will again be seeking sponsors for weekly awards / treats. This applies to both the 2.628 mile races and the children's one mile run. We will have a cook out the third Thursday of every month from May to September. It will start after the Thursday race.

Please contact the race directors for more details.

Anyone who would like to make contributions for the children's run should contact Frank St. Phillips or one of the officers. Contributions can be in the form of treats, awards or cash support for these items.
