We host a kids’ program to encourage kids to get moving. Children 12 years of age and younger that are participating in the race (not the kids fun run) are encouraged to participate in the Running Zone Foundation Kids Crew!

  • Meet at the GREEN Running Zone tent
  • Children in the “Running Zone Kids Crew” sign in on the clipboard with name, age and race #.
