Fort Collins offers numerous opportunities to encourage kids to get into running. FCRC does not have a formal youth program but has compiled a list of youth programs in the area.

FCRC also offers a Tortoise and Hare racing series that runs from mid-fall to early spring. This is a free benefit for members of the FCRC. We offer a Running Buddy program that allows kids to run with someone on race day. Youth membership to FCRC is only $10 per year!

In addition to the programs above, we offer funding opportunities to support community groups who wish to start their own youth running program. To learn more about funding opportunities, visit our Grant Programs page.
