Kids "Kandy Kane" Fun Run

  • Wave 1: ages 3-6 years old or any kid(s) running with their parent
  • Wave 2: ages 7 & 8 years old with NO parents
Kids "Kandy Kane" 1K (.62 miles):
  • Wave 1: ages 3-6 years old or any kid(s) running with parent
  • Wave 2: ages 7 & 8 years old with NO parents
  • Wave 3: ages 9 and above with NO parents


The waves are designed to ensure the safety of the kids and to create a fun experience. Mass starts can cause trips and falls and no one likes those! Listen for the appropriate wave and please be patient. The kids get excited and we ask the parents to please assist us in listening and instructing their children of the rules. Be courteous of the other participants and at the end of day, please HAVE FUN!

Please note: The Fun Run is for kids 8 years old and under. All kids age 9 years or older must register for the Kids 1K. We encourage kids to participate on their own, but provide one race wave for parents to run with their kid(s).

  • Pre-registration: $15
  • Day of Race $20
  • Race is capped at 300 kids!

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR KIDS EARLY – Help us Plan! (Day of race registration will not guarantee a shirt for your child. Please only sign up for 1K race if your kids are capable of running a half mile or more!

Thank you!

All Kids Races are after the 5K and 12K races have finished.
Please allow enough time for traffic and parking – arrive early!
