I Am Hampton Roads: Holden McCormick

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) *updated 4/12/14

11 year-old Holden McCormick’s passion for running began with a free pair of running shoes. At the age of nine, Holden ran his first race and he is now making it his mission to introduce younger kids to the sport. His journey as a runner is this week’s I Am Hampton Roads.

His mom shares how they have supported him through the process, while Holden chimes in on his personal goals as a runner (to have his first half-marathon under his belt before age 12!), and tips for other kids who are interested in setting running goals for themselves.
