There is a fee of $20 for adults and children are free. When you register, only register the adults on your team. *** You will be charged for every registrant.  Therefore, do not officially register your children unless you are wanting to make the additional donation to the PA.**    Looking for team tees...after registering, visit the PS 87 Store at and shop for matching PS 87 shirts for your group.  Once you register, there is a printable bib for you to wear and save.  Once you have completed you race, register your time on your run/walk page.  Take photos of your team joining in on the fun and fitness!!!
