How will the kids course be ran?
The 1 mile kids course will start based on the childs' size of shirt (each size will be a different color of shirt). For example the XS and S will start last, Medium 2nd and Large 1st. That way we don't have big kids running over the little kids. However, if there are families that want their children to run together, they are welcome to do so, but they just need to be careful to watch out for the little kids if their bigger kids are running.
Can I join my child for the 1 mile kids course?
Yes! In fact, we encourage it! Adults do not need to register for the 1 mile kids courseif they are simply accompanying their child along the course.
