Kids 1K Fun Run

The KID'S 1K FUN RUN gives youth ages 6+ a taste of the Carry Your Cross 5K. 
Starting in the church parking lot - children run down and back up the final leg of the 5K course. The Kids 1K is FREE  

Medals will be awarded to the top 3 male and female runners in this Fun Run.
While the Kids 1K is FREE - we do ask that each child be registered online prior to April 15th or onsite before 10am on race day.

T-shirts are not included in the FREE event. However they are available for purchase online or onsite for $12. [Quantitiies and sizes may be limited.]

Note: Kids do not have to "carry a cross" unless they choose to.
The 1K course does take children onto a road that is not closed to traffic; however, it is a VERY low traffic side street and course marshals will be present to help direct runners. Parents are welcome to run this with your child.

FREE: The Little Kid's Fun Run is a short race around the parking lot. Children age 2-3 run one lap and then children age 4-5 run two laps.

While the Little Kid's Fun Run is FREE - we do ask that each child be registered online prior to April 15th or onsite before 10am on race day.
T-shirts are not included in the FREE event. However they are available for purchase online or onsite for $12. [Quantitiies and sizes may be limited.]

This race will begin after the Kids 1K is finished approximately at 10:20am so that parents can watch all of their children run! Reminder: Childcare is available during the 5K so adults can run without worrying about wrangling the kids.
