This fun run is for kids ages 12 & Under and the fee is $10 per child.

It will begin at 8:50 am just before the 5K. Kids line up at the start line of the 5K.

Kids will be divided into groups according to age. Only pre-registered children are guaranteed a participant ribbon. Performance t-shirt included if registration and payment are received by Oct 20, no guarantee after that date.

5K Course

3.1 mile run or walk, out and back, flat course.

The course will begin near the Shinnston Rail Trail head near the Dairy Oh (formerly Dairy Queen) on Pike Street. Runners will start the race on the road, then be directed onto the trail. They turn around at the half way point and head to the finish line on the rail trail. The majority of the race will be on the rail trail. Strollers welcome. No pets allowed on course! This is to ensure participants safety.

If you are walking or pushing a stroller please begin the race toward the back of the start line. The race will have chip timing this year. Your time should not be effected and this will help ensure a safe start.
