The Try Boro Kids Races Series is a non-profit organization that puts on unique endurance events to help get kids active.  Founded in 2009 with one triathlon.  This event was hosted by Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation and their SportsCom facility.  That first year saw 175 kids swim, bike, and run and since then the series has hosted 17 events.  For the past 4 years, the series has hosted a 2.5K/5K Run in May, a triathlon in August, and a trail in October.  

In 2016, the series is partnering with the Better Boro Project, which is part of an initiative by the city of Murfreesboro to promote health and fitness.  As part of this initiative, the Try Boro Kids Race Series will host the clinics in April, 2.5K/5K Run in May, and the trail run in October.  The series will also provide support for other events such as Read to Succeed and Murph's Fun Run.
