Organizers of the Kids Fun Run, which is the night before the Mill Race Marathon, are encouraging parents to sign up children early through the website at millracemarathon.com.
Early signup and information packet pickup will be available at the Health and Fitness Expo at The Commons from 4 to 8 p.m. Sept. 26 and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 27, letting participants and families avoid the last-minute rush. However, those who cannot make these early registration times can come to the park’s amphitheater from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. Sept. 27, just prior to the Kids Fun Run.
Organizers expect children to have plenty of fun and walk away with a cool medal and bag of goodies. A cold bottle of water and banana will help them recover following the race.
The event will be set up as a mini version of a marathon, with the little ones, divided by age groups, running through Mill Race Park wearing their running bibs and everyone cheering as they cross the finish line.
Warmups will begin about 5:50 p.m. Sept. 27, with the race at 6 p.m. The event is free, but T-shirts can be purchased for $5.
