Matthew wasn't good at many sports. Kyla thought 3.1 miles was way too far. Caleb had just spent the previous two years relearning to walk.

What do these kids have in common? They crossed the finish line at a GO FAR 5K. Every year across the country, hundreds of kids who have never run before train for 8-10 weeks, learn the proper form of running, and do something they didn't think they could do. It's not about how fast they go. It's about finishing. It's about going farther than they ever thought possible.

Through GO FAR, kids not only get active, they also learn healthy eating habits, explore good character skills, and discover self-confidence, all while having fun! Find a GO FAR club near you!
