Kids Run Free at the Olympic Torch Relay

The Olympics are well and truly on the way and all of us here at Kids Run Free can't wait, so you can imagine just how excited we were about the Olympic Torch Parade. In fact we were all so excited that we couldn't help but hold a little taster session at St Nicholas Park in Warwick.

Catherine arrived bright and early on Sunday to set up the course followed by Pete, Gail, Martine and Brian. Of course no KRF event would be complete without the adorable Joey the Kangaroo who was on top form throughout the day cheering on all the runners (and if you were lucky he even let your pull his tail...)

We were so pleased that so many families came along to have a go! Olly from Touch FM did a fantastic job of announcing our runs throughout the day so we were never short of enthusiastic runners.

All the children that took part received an Olympic Torch relay certificate. We hope we inspired them all to Start Young and Stay Fit.

After our races, KRF went to see the all important Torch relay which only got us even more excited for the Olympics.

Don't worry if you missed out, we hold races on the first Saturday of every month so why not sign up now at our website?
