About Our Program
Reston Runners’ Youth In Motion (YIM) program is a non-profit, non-competitive summer youth running/fitness program.
Our mission is to introduce our youth to the joy of running and running-related activities in a fun atmosphere to help them maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.
The program has been recognized in the past as the best youth running program in the country by the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) and was awarded a grant from the RRCA "Kids Run the Nation" program in 2013. It is comprised of 300+ participants, ages 4-13 years old, and is entirely staffed by volunteers.
- All participants are divided into age groups: 4-5 year olds, 6-7 year olds, 8-9 year olds, 10-13 year olds (participants must be 4yrs of age by start of session).
- At the end of the season, we will hold our 5th Annual YIM Race & Party at Lake Fairfax Park!
- A program gift will be given to each participant.
- A coach shirt will be given to each volunteer coach. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer as a coach.
No prior training necessary, except… a commitment to attending 7 of the sessions and taking background screening.
