New for 2017 – we are excited to introduce the Kid’s Dash Fun Run, sponsored by Palos Health. This is a non-competitive event that is designed to encourage little ones to get outside and get active! Each participating child that crosses the finish line will receive a commemorative ribbon. All age groups will “dash” on the same course as the distance runners, outside of City Hall in Palos Heights at Route 83 & 76th Avenue, with the first group beginning at 10:30am.
The Kid’s Dash will include:
50 Yard Dash for children ages 4 and under
100 Yard Dash for children ages 5 to 6
200 Yard Dash for children ages 7 to 8
Quarter Mile Dash for children ages 9 to 10
Participation is FREE. No strollers or baby joggers are allowed in the Kid’s Dash. This race is specifically designed to have children participate on their own, or with the support of a parent or guardian. Each child must be registered in their proper age bracket. Please be sure to register the child under the age bracket they will be in at the time of the race – May 7th, 2017.
