KIDS FUN RUN EVENTS
Kids can have the best time of their lives, too—even if we’re not timing them. Our Kids Fun Runs, short-distance, non-competitive events for kids of all ages, focuses on the enjoyable sport of running. They encourage families to discover the fundamentals of fitness. The goal of the run is to provide a positive experience that will encourage the young to be active and physically fit.

Family Fun Activities - Pre-race activities kick off at 11 a.m. and include face painting, caricature and balloon artists, games, and more!

Dashes (Children ages 3 to 12) - The Kids Fun Run activities will include a series of short-distance dashes, beginning at Noon. Each age group will have a separate race with age-appropriate distances. Participants will receive special goodies and giveaways.

Mile and Half Mile Fun Run (Children ages 6 to 12) - Mile and Half Mile races will begin immediately following the Dashes. Participants will get the thrill of running on the Philadelphia Marathon course and cross the same finish line as our marathoners! Participants will receive a finisher medal and t-shirt.

Upon completion of the Kids Fun Runs, children will be led into the holding area; once inside, they will be presented with their finisher’s medals. At that point, children will be escorted to their parents by a volunteer who will take them to the opening in the holding area barricades.

To join in the run, children must have a parent or guardian on site. Adults will not be permitted on the course to run with their children. Waivers are required and will be available on site.
