Healthy Kids Running Series Clifton Registration Open

The Healthy Kids Running Series in Clifton was recently approved by Clifton City Council for use of the local park along Riverside Drive. This time, the races are set for Sundays September 26, October 3, 10, 17 and 24. The series is open to children that reside across Bosque County. Race days will start at 3 p.m. each Sunday at Clifton City Park at 401 East 2nd Street. 

Organizer Renee Kettler explains races to parents and runners earlier this spring. HKRS in Clifton has quickly become a Bosque County fmaily tradition.

If this series is a fun as the first-ever set of runs held last springs, both parents and kids will enjoy physical activity, the challenge, and healthy fun. A high-five, congratulations, or shout of encouragement is never far away from the finish line or race sidelines. By the end of the five-run series, many contestants knew each other by name, and caught up before and after races. All runners improved their times from the start at least twice throughout the event. 

"I'm excited to bring HKRS back to Clifton this fall! Registration is open and early bird pricing is in effect right now. We'll run in Clifton on Sundays at 3 p.m. for five weeks beginning September 26th."

A Brief Event History

Organizer Rene Kettler was inspired to begin the series in Clifton after participating in the Belton series. She worked one-on-one with a girl, Eleanor, who built the confidence to run a race on her own by the series’ finish.

“Healthy Kids Running Series gave Eleanor the opportunity to not only face a challenge but show her how hard work can help her overcome it. Her first race was tough when she realized how difficult it was. Instead of giving up, HKRS gave her a running buddy, who inspired her, and taught her that it’s okay for things to be hard. The whole experience taught her how to try her best and never give up. She can’t wait for her next races!”
