Young Sprint for Life runners

The Sprint for Sprouts Kids' Run is non-competitive racing for children 12 and under. Children who participate receive a special Sprint ribbon.

The first race is a Tot Trot for very young children (3 years and younger) who will run about 150 feet. The second race is the Sprouts run for all children under 12 years old. Both races will take place on the Prairie located next to the Post Race Party.

  • Children must be accompanied in the race by a parent or legal guardian. Children must also comply with instructions from volunteers who are stationed along the course
