    inspiring kids and communities,
    one run at a time

    GO FAR is an 8- or 10-week fitness program for school children, designed to reduce childhood obesity by teaching healthy eating habits, goal setting, and how to train for a 5K. A user-friendly curriculum helps coaches — teachers, parents, volunteers — offer the program to children of all abilities, most typically as an afterschool club.

    We make running cool. And fun.

    The GO FAR training program culminates with a fun, festive GO FAR 5K family walk/run.
