About the Kids Dash

  • The Kids Dash is essentially at the same time but the kids will go right after the 5k runners and walkers have cleared the start line. The kids are well-supervised during their 1-mile out and back but parents are absolutely welcome to run with their child.
  • If a parent wants to do the 5k they can go ahead and rest assured the kids will be supervised before, during and after their dash while parents are running or walking the 5k.
  • If a parent wants to run with the kids AND do the 5k they could run with the kids until the 1/2 mile turnaround and then continue on to finish the 5k. Hope that makes sense!
