Date: April 6, 2013
Location: Cricket Field in Forest Park
Time: 10:45 am
The children’s fun runs are held as part of the annual Family Fitness Weekend. The runs take place in Forest Park and feature four different events for children ranging from toddlers, who maneuver the short carpeted course with a crawl or quick burst of energy to the awaiting arms of a parent, to children aged 2-10 years-of-age, who compete in either a 50-yard dash, 100 yard dash or half mile run. The excitement of these young participant’s faces as they compete is inspiring and for some is the starting line for a lifetime of fitness commitment.
Traditionally more than 500 children participate in one of the four different distances. Children receive an event t-shirt and commemorative finisher’s medal to celebrate their accomplishment.
< 2 years old: Diaper Dash (for true "crawlers")
2 - 4 years old: 50 yard Dash
5 - 6 years old: 100 yard Dash
7 - 10 years old: ½ mile Run
