Get your kids active and out of the house! Bring them to the Blast. Let your kids run around Hyde Park Square while friends and family cheer them on
Check out the kids run course map HERE!
Race day kids run registration (for $20) will be available beginning at 6:30AM on Hyde Park Square. Every participant of the run will receive a t-shirt.
Kids races will be staged after the 4-mile race in the intersection of Edwards and Erie just opposite the 4-mile finish line and will follow the below schedule. Depending on the number of kids in each age group, we will have multiple waves to ensure a fun and safe event for each competitor.
The races will run away from the Square on Erie to staggered turnaround points and return to the finish line. As the kids finish, they can claim their medal and a special snack.
Kids Sprints will be staged at the corner of Shaw and Erie following the Men's 3/4 race (6pm). The waves will start at 6:15pm, and run in age groups:
2-3 Year Olds (.1 Mile...turnaround @ Zumstein)
4-6 Year Olds (.2 Mile...turnaround @ Mooney)
7-9 Year Olds (.4 Mile...turnaround @ Burch)
10-13 Year Olds (.5 Mile...turnaround @ Stetinius)
