The track club started Kilometer Kids in 2007 to promote health and fitness among kids aged 7 and 14 in the Atlanta area. It serves more than 7,500 children annually and is supported by the track club, private donations and partnerships with the Atlanta Braves Foundation, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta, Chick-fil-A and more.

The season ends May 14 in Piedmont Park, with the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia Peachtree Junior, which requires a separate registration and fee.
