Does your kid want to join in on the fun? Are you hoping to instill your love for running and the outdoors?

Not only is this race series a chance for little ones ages 3-10 to be a part of the “Big Kid” races, but it’s also a great way to teach children how to lead a healthy lifestyle. The races are non-competitive — everyone receives a finishers ribbon for participating! Distances vary based on age and location but is always less than a mile.

Run multiple races, earn more prizes!
