Kids Run Free is a registered charity established in 2010 and based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Our mission is to get young people passionate about exercise. Our message to families is ‘Start young and Stay fit’. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to exercise as early as possible. More children are overweight now than ever before, and a healthy exercise and diet regime can help them avoid this, as well as providing a stepping stone should they choose to move on to other sports. We run regular free running events for children at a number of parks in the Midlands: Newbold Comyn, Leamington Spa Shottery Fields, Stratford-upon-Avon War Memorial Park, Coventry Bentley Heath Recreation Ground, Solihull Kings Heath Park, Birmingham Braunstone Park, Leicester We have funding to set up another two Kids Run Free events in the Midlands and longer term we will look at opportunities to find suitable venues, funding and volunteers to allow us to extend Kids Run Free outside the Midlands.
