Can children age 12 and under run/walk in the 4.2 mile event?

  • Yes. Kids participating in the 4.2 mile event must be registered for this event; entry fee is identical to adults. Kids registered for the 4.2 mile event will receive the official technical race shirt, race number and timing tag. Children may participate in both the 4.2 mile and Kids Run, but must register separately for each event.    

My child/children is/are registered for the .42 mile Kids Run. Can I run alongside them?

  • Yes. A parent may accompany children in the .42 mile Kids Run and are welcome to carry the littlest ones to finish line. Course marshals will line the Kids Run route to ensure the safety of all participants.

Can my children of various ages run the Kids Run together?

  • For the safety of all Kids Run participants, children are staged in start-line corrals by age and corresponding race number color, with the 12 year olds going first and the 0-4 year olds going last. Older children may start in later corrals, but younger children may not move up in corrals to be with older siblings. A group/family of children must start in the youngest child’s assigned corral.

Can I leave my child in the Kids Corner while I participate in the 4.2 mile event?
