History of RunFit:

 

 

 

RunFit launched the spring of 2006 as a bold joint initiative aimed at curbing the growing epidemic of childhood obesity by creating a running program for children at after-school (or before school) programs across New Mexico.

 

 

 

RunFit is designed to help youth of all sizes, fitness and ability levels utilize the discipline of running to improve health, build character and uplift the spirit. After-school programs such as RunFit play a vital role in the lives our communities by keeping kids’ safe, creating healthy habits and helping working families.

 

 

 

RunFit is a fun, free and intensive program which motivates and trains elementary school students to run one mile to 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) without stopping, through active participation on an after school (or before school) running team. Participants learn to set and achieve challenging personal goals and are awarded with incentives for attendance and improvement and culminating in local running events.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank-a-volunteer campaign!

 

The Los Ranchos de Albuquerque Half Marathon is fortunate to have some of the friendliest and hardest-working volunteers around. More than 75 volunteers help us on race morning to ensure you feel welcomed, are fully informed; have a safe, successful and positive running experience, and more! When you have a chance, give a hearty, fun-loving thanks!
