|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until October 14, 2018

Race Distances for Different Age Groups

Pre-K 2/3 year olds: 50 Yard Dash
Pre-K 4/5 year olds: 75 Yard Dash

2nd – 3rd grade: 1/2 Mile

How It Works

Before the race, the kids will pick up race bags, get t-shirts, and wear numbers. The community coordinators will then lead a fun warm up and demo some running techniques for the kids to learn. The 50 yard dash is first and depending on the number of kids registered, boys and girls may race separately. The races will then be in order of age groups, with the mile race being at the end. Runners accumulate points throughout the season and trophies are awarded to the top finishers based on those points, which is a fun goal for the participants! After the races on the last week, there will also be a “Parent Mile” for fun.

It is preferable that you register online, but you are welcome to come at any time.
