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. 21-22) 8am-5pm at 5400 King James Way in Fitchburg or Thanksgiving morning at the registration tent. 

It’s a good idea to show up early—the Kids Dash will start at 8am SHARP! You can find parking here, then get some hot chocolate or coffee. 

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.  You can find the race route on the Village Map here.

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

5k Run or Walk:

If you’re staying for the big race, kids ages 4-6 are welcome to run the 5k for only $7 ($8 if registered after Nov. 10) 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).

NOTE: All children under age 10 should be accompanied by a guardian during the 5k run or walk. Any lost kids should report to the Registration tent.
