Kids Can Run, Too!

2020: This year, we will not have onsite kids races. Instead, we look forward to seeing your videos and photos of your kids enjoying the Walk and Run for Life – wherever you are! Kids are welcome to register as Runners or Walkers (onsite or Virtual) and raise funds. Click an option below to learn more about onsite or virtual options for 2020. (Please note that kids must be pre-registered to participate in any onsite event.)

The Toddler Trot and Kids Dash are perfect for your little racers! These short races after the Life Walk let kids get in on the fun of running for Life. Although there is no charge for your small runners to participate, they must be registered and parents need to sign a waiver. All children will receive a medal of participation. The top three winners for each race will receive a trophy at the Awards Ceremony.

Toddler Trot: ages 4 and under

Kids Dash: ages 5-7

Other activities specific for the kids include a playground, face painting, and lots of space to run around and explore.

Pro-Tip: All kids need to be registered to participate. Get it out of the way and Pre-Register your whole family to shorten your check-in time on W&R day. Then, the kids can play instead of standing in line.

5k Run? As appropriate, older children are welcome to participate in the 5k Timed Race. They will need to be registered as runners and pay the $45 runner fee. Keep in mind that they will be running alongside adults.

Fundraising: Generally, kids will fundraise with their parents when they register as a family. If you’d like your child to actively fundraise on their own, please register them separately, and they will receive their own FundEasy page.
