Playmakers Running Buddies

June 6, 2020

Details

There are 7 one-mile race heats (one every 15 minutes) starting at 9:00 am and going through 10:45 am. Running buddies of all speeds are needed to run with the kids to help keep them safe on the course and ensure they don’t get lost. You can run all of the heats if you wish or just a couple. We would ask that several stay to the back and make sure some of the kids that might be struggling make it safely across the finish line. Running buddies should wear their red Team Playmakers shirts to help kids and parents recognize them, but are welcome to take a race volunteer t-shirt home.
