Health Benefits for children

While all physical activity is beneficial for kids, running can significantly improve kids’ physical, mental, and personal well-being. Not only can running help them stay fit and healthy, it can also teach kids valuable life lessons and skills that will translate into other areas. From improved self-confidence and discipline to better sleep and more family bonding, here are some of the many benefits of running for kids.

Running is a suitable physical activity for children as it promotes proper functioning of the musculoskeletal system, given the need for coordination between breathing and movement, strengthening the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems.

Kids who run, or do other regular physical activity, will have stronger muscles and bones and face less risk of becoming overweight or developing type 2 diabetes. They’ll also have lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels. Active kids sleep better and more prepared and better equipped to handle emotional and physical challenges they may face.

When kids run, especially if they participate in a running program or do it regularly as a family activity, they’ll create a establish a life-long exercise habit. Starting an exercise habit early in life will have incredible mental and physical health benefits for them, now and hopefully in the future.

In children, it fosters a strong connection that encourages values such as responsibility and consistency. Invite your children to run with you and strengthen family bonds while engaging in an excellent sport.
