- Yes, Kids Fun Run participants are required to print out an e-registration to claim their bibs and shirts. Pre-registered fun runners will get an email sent to the email address associated with their registration just like all adult participants.
- Our e-registration restriction of picking up one additional packet and ID requirements does not apply for the kids fun run. We do not expect kids to have ID’s nor the capability of picking up their own packet.
- We do offer Saturday packet pick up in the Kids Fun Zone only for kids fun run participants who do not have an adult also running on Saturday. However some shirt sizes may be limited if you decide to do race morning pick up. We encourage all kids fun runners to pick up at the expo.
Starting the Fun Run
Prior to the race, all participants will meet at the BABE RUTH STATUE (near the intersection of Camden & Eutaw Streets- LOOK FOR THE BLUE TENT). All participating kids will be provided with an Under Armour race shirt and race bib which has a matching numbered stub for parents. We also ask that all kids write a parent’s cell phone number on their bib in case you get separated. We ask that parents assist their children in getting to the proper location to start the race. Parents are encouraged to run the course with their child. All races will start promptly at the time indicated.
Fun Run Finish Area
Participants will cross the same finish line as the adult participants. Upon completion of the race, participants corralled in a holding area at the finish. Parents are asked to claim their child here & present their numbered stub. All participants are invited to go directly to the Kids Zone to receive their finisher’s medal. In addition, water, Gatorade & snacks will be available in the Fun Zone.
Kids Fun Zone
Join us in the Kids Fun Zone pre and post-race for games, activities, and giveaways. The Fun Zone is where all kids run participants will gather after the race, and will receive shirts, snacks, water, and other goodies post-race.
