Update on Reston Runners programs for 2021
Your Reston Runners board and program leaders hope to conduct some of our programs and events in the summer of 2021, such as the Women's Training Program, the Seize the Day 5K, Youth in Motion, Interval Training, and 10 Weeks to 10K. But all of these are subject to progress in the fight against COVID and our ability to get permits. Some programs may not be possible, some may be redesigned or delayed. Please keep checking back with us.
YIM cancelled for 2020
To protect the safety of our youth participants and volunteers in light of the coronavirus pandemic, Reston Runners has reluctantly concluded we will not be able to conduct our Youth in Motion program in 2020. We look forward to seeing you and your children again next summer in 2021.

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.
