This 1 mile run for kids (ages 13 and under) will take place at Smucker Park. Featuring fun color, water, and bubble stations to run through, as well as other kids activities throughout the park for families to enjoy.
Children will start the race in waves according to age. Registration and check in will begin at 8 am and the first age group will take off at 8:45 am (then every 10 minutes after that). Children are encouraged to run by themselves. The 3-5 year age group will have the option of finishing at the .5 mile mark or continuing on for the full mile.
Parents are welcome to run/walk around the center grassy area to keep an eye on their children and there will be a number of volunteers along the course to help kids along the way. There is a $5 charge for parents running with their child. If you are running with a child you must have a race bib/bracelet to be on the course (this is for the safety of all the children running).
Each kid runner will be getting a runner's goodie bag. To guarantee your little runner gets their goodie bag, it is recommended that you pre-register online before the day of the event. Extra bags will be brought the day of the event but supplies will be limited.
