What is Roadrunners?

Roadrunners originated in 1993 by Kelly Williams, a physical education teacher at Lithia Springs Elementary, in Douglasville, Georgia.  Since then, Roadrunners has been incorporated into 9+ schools in Douglas County, making this after school program one of the largest running groups in the state of Georgia.  The purpose for Roadrunners is to not only promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles, but to provide an after school running enrichment program for children that offers the opportunity to improve running knowledge and skills, to participate in running events, and to give children a chance to meet other students in the school and the community.  The program is also designed to be a self-esteem builder for children, giving them a feeling of success when he/she finishes a race and challenging them to improve their personal run times for future events.
