• Youth Series

    Looking to introduce your child to running?

    Space Coast Runners’ Youth Series offers FUN RUNS (ages 12 & under) at 6 different track events in conjunction with the SCR Runner of the Year Series 2021-2022.

    These non-competitive runs are FREE, but parents will be required to sign a waiver on the day of the races for their children to participate. If they wish, parents may run along with their children that are 4 years of age and under.
