Registration for Youth in Motion is closed for 2024

Reston Runners’ Youth In Motion (YIM) Program is a non-profit, non-competitive summer youth running/fitness program. The program is eight (8) weeks—7 sessions at the track and an end of season celebration and race at Lake Fairfax Park. Our program offers fun activities for up to 300 participants, ages 4-13 years old, and is entirely staffed by volunteer coaches. 


Our mission is to introduce youth to the joy of running and running-related activities in a fun atmosphere to help them maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

Adults call it "working out"; Kids call it "playing"

The program received recognition as one of the best youth running programs in the country by
the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) and received grant funds towards our 2024 program. 
We also thank Road Runners Sports - Sterling for help sponsoring our program.
