KIDS RACE

Fun for the little ones, too!  There will be a Kids Race at 7:45 a.m., for children under 13.  Each child will be issued a real race bib and receive a finisher medal and a small gift.  The course distance will be 400 meters or less, and there may be two separate heats, depending on the number of children and their ages.

Registration fee is $3 if pre-reserving a spot online in advance on our race website, or $5 if registering on race-day.  In either case, you will need to pay the fee in cash on race-day, anytime from 7:15 a.m. onward. Please note that children under 13 are not eligible to run in the 5K or Half-Marathon.

RACE PACKETS

Choose Packet Shipping when registering ($5.95), to avoid the lines on race day and have your race cap and bib delivered to your door before the race.  Option available for US addresses only, through July 13.  Option not available for Half-Marathon Relay.
For runners that do not choose packet shipping, packet pickup is available at the race site between 7:00-7:45AM.

RACE CAPS

For a fun change, the giveaway for this race will be a Sri Chinmoy Races vented running cap instead of a shirt!

*Race caps guaranteed for all participants registered by July 9. We'll do our best to provide caps for those who register after that date, but no guarantees!

Today, the SCMT organizes over 1,700 races a year in 27 countries across 4 continents, ranging from short kids fun-runs, to marathons to the world’s longest certified road race – the annual Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race (yes, 3,100 miles, it’s not a typo).  We love running and putting on races – we hope you enjoy the friendly atmosphere we provide, free of commercial sponsors.
