2017 COURSE

traditional route
Last year we had to change the course due to construction on our traditional route. For 2017 we will be running our traditional route around the Newmarket Elementary school and down Packers Falls Road.

 

We understand that some people enjoyed the 2016 alternate course, however our traditional course is easier to manage traffic and ensures the safety of our runners.

 

 

T-SHIRTS

Annual 5K Kids Fun Run, 2016
You spoke and we listened. Our race now features technical t-shirts.
In order to guarantee a t-shirt in your size you must register in advance.

 

We cannot guarantee sizes or that supplies will last for same day registrations. So the moral of the story is….Register Early!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BIB PICK UP

      I do not currently have any registered runners with the name Ann Wilk. Did you have difficulty using the online registration?

    What distance is the kids fun run?

      The kids fun run isn’t a formal distance. This year we will be having 2 runs for the kids. The Tots Run will be a very short distance, possibly 100 yds. This would be best for toddlers or smaller kids. We will also have a JV Run which will loop around the Newmarket Athletic fields. We are estimating this will be somewhere around a quarter of a mile. This run would be better for older elementary school kids.

    Thanks! My 3 year old did a half mile fun run recently and loved it, so we might do the longer of the two, we’ll see what he says. Depends if I can run along with him while he does it.
