Kid's Dash Details
All participants receive a race bib, custom cast medal, event t-shirt, and slice of pie!   5k is chip timed and kid's runs are for fun.  We will start lining the kids up at 9:05 per age group.  All the kids races are on a out and back loop and start and end in the same spot.   The course will be closed and lined with volunteers to direct all kids to the turnaround spot. They can turn early if they want with no penalty if they think it's too far.  One adult per child can run with their participant and the parent does not have to register but will not receive the shirt, medal, bib or pie. 

If you have a child that just wants to ride in a stroller with you on the 5k course, they can do so without registering.  They will not receive a medal, bib, shirt or pie but they can share yours!
