Before the Race:

First you will need to pick up their race bib IN PERSON when you pick up your own.  Pick up is on the Tuesday or Wednesday before the race (Nov. 23-24) 8am-6pm at 5400 King James Way, Suite #100, Fitchburg or Thanksgiving morning at the registration tent. Kids Dash t-shirts will also be available to purchase for $5 at packet pick up. There is a limited supply, so come early if you would like one.

It’s a good idea to show up early—the Kids Dash will start at 8am SHARP! You can find parking here, get some hot chocolate or coffee, and head to the Gobbler Pavilion for fun activities. Warm up with our turkey mascot at 7:45 outside the pavilion, then it’s time to line up for the Kids Dash!

Race info:

Make sure your little runner has their race bib attached to the front of them and is visible  This is the way they will receive their medal.  The bigger kids can head up front, and the smaller kids in back.   From the starting line, kids will run toward the orange cone and then back. You can find the race route on the Village Map here.

Volunteers will be there to provide medals to all finishers with a bib!

If you’re staying for the big race, kids ages 4-6 are welcome to run the 5k for only $5 and get the goody bag and long-sleeve shirt—register them hereKids 3 and under can can join parents in a stroller for the 5K and do not need to be registered (line up in the stroller wave).
