Road Runners Club of America Invites Applications for Kids Run the Nation Grants Program

Since 2007, the Road Runners Club of America and its Kids Run the Nation initiative have assisted running clubs, schools, and community nonprofits interested in implementing or hosting youth running programs.

In 2021, small grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 will be awarded to start-up or pre-existing gender-inclusive, structured running programs. Programs should have kids running regularly — more than once each week for multiple weeks — instead of participating in a single event. However, the program may culminate in a goal fun run or other organized running event. Programs should be focused on participation and ideally use the Kids Run the Nation youth running curriculum.

Examples of materials and activities funded through the program include marketing materials, brochures, posters, flyers, and other printed or digital materials informing parents about the program. Other activities include advertising the program in a community newspaper or website, hosting a program website, and other written materials for program participants, in addition to other items that the RRCA Grant Selection Committee decides to fund.

To be eligible, applicants must be a running club, event, or other organization with tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For example, elementary and middle schools that provide an organized after-school running program are eligible as are schools, parent booster clubs, PTAs, or similar entities.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Road Runners Club of America website.

Deadline: August 1, 2021
