The Austin Cross Country Kid's Run

Looking for a kid's run to get the kiddos out and about? This year marks the 34th annual Austin Cross Country Kid's Run.

The event will be held along the Lady Bird Lake Trail on November 20th. The event seeks to provide an opportunity for any child, ages 5-14, in the Austin and local communities, to experience a fun and welcoming cross country run. The purpose of this event is to promote the idea that fitness is fun, challenging, rewarding, and necessary in order to achieve lifelong wellness.

This year 1379 is teaming up with the Austin Association of Physical Education and Recreation (AAPER)to give any child the opportunity to participate. The event will be made affordable by having an entry fee of only $5. Funds are being raised to help so that even those who may not afford it, can still have this experience. Any additional funds raised will further support Austin's youth in their PE classes by purchasing equipment and other instructional materials.

Registration forms, flyers, and further information about the event can be directed to Lindsay Rosenthal, 1379 Family Sports Store, by calling 512-779-4761 or by emailing Nick at
