Can I run with my child in the 1K race?

We will have a table set up near the start of the race to sign the forms. You will then be given a sticker to wear on your shirt. Any parents who would like to run with their kids will be asked to line up in the last wave of 1K runners.

First Wave: Kids ages 9 and above

Second Wave: Kids ages 8-7
