  • Stronger bones and muscles. Running helps to build bone density and muscle mass, which can help to prevent injuries and keep kids active throughout their lives.
  • Improved mood and mental health. Running can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also boost self-esteem and confidence.
  • Improved sleep. Running can help kids to sleep better at night.
  • Cognitive benefits. Running can help to improve cognitive function, including memory, concentration, and decision-making.
  • Social benefits. Running can be a great way for kids to socialise and make friends. It can also be a fun way to explore the outdoors.​
