As part of its efforts to nurture athletics talents at a young age, Athletics Kenya has incorporated kids’ athletics as part of its programmes and efforts. This includes providing opportunities for children aged 12 and under to compete at various national and international competitions in Kenya including the 2021 Agnes Tirop Memorial Cross Country Tour, National Cross Country Championships and the AK Mountain Running Series.

In collaboration with various entities, the federation has also helped organise athletics activities for kids such as family fun runs at various marathons as well as school competitions at the primary and secondary level.

Apart from preparing the future stars of tomorrow, AK Kids’ Athletics ensures a healthy and productive nation by empowering and equipping the little ones with tips for a physically active lifestyle that keeps lifestyle diseases at bay.
