Description

The Kids Fall Series is a series of four races in four different city and county parks. There are 5 separate divisions of progressively increasing length, as follows.

Ages 0-3: 25-50 yards
Ages 4-5: .25 mile - 600 yards
Ages 6-8: 600 yards - .75 mile
Ages 9-11: .75 - 1.5 miles
Ages 12 and up: 1.5 miles - 3 miles

The age groupings are suggestions only. Each kid can run whatever distance they feel comfortable with.

This is a trail series and may include such things as hay bales, rocks, water, and other obstructions.

Each child receives a ribbon after each race.

Results are generated for all divisions, but the first three divisions are not timed. The results for those divisions will simply show the participant's names. Divisions four and five are timed. However, the emphasis is on fun and smiles for all divisions, and to encourage the kids to tackle whatever distance they can handle.
