"My daughter LOVED being a part of Running with the Stars this past Fall. She has gained confidence, self assurance, and pride from both her running training and by completing her first 5K. She has talked about how much fun she had in Running with the Stars for the last month and keeps asking when it will begin again! Thank you for such a positive, rich experience."
Thanks, Tiffany B. (BelmontStation Elementary School)

Welcome!

Running with the Stars will be celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary in FALL 2018! Running with the Stars is an after school program consisting of girls and boys in first through sixth grade in the Northern Virgina and Maryland area. Participants train after school two times a week with a coach, typically a parent or teacher, to prepare for a 5K run/jog. This is a non-competitive activity where we encourage the kids to strive for their own personal best. Our goal is to promote overall health and an interest in exercise. Ultimately, the kids will have a great time being active with their friends and build confidence along the way.

What Running with the Stars Coaches are Saying:
One family's review of Running with the Stars:

" We would like to share something very special that happened at the run on Sunday that really spoke to the quality of your children and the friendships and team spirit they have developed over the past 11 weeks. As the runners finished their 5Ks, with no prompting from the coaches, they made their way back toward the course where some of our first finishers had staked out an area where they could watch for their team mates and cheer for them as they neared the finish. The children could have simply gotten their snacks and gone and listened to music or played with their friends, but they cheered for each other. It was extremely touching and humbling as coaches to see them come together in this manner. We stayed and cheered until our final runner made her way across the finish, and it was amazing. Kudos to all of you for raising such giving and supportive children."
