Kid’s Fun Run Info: Our first kids race will start at 10:30 a.m. with the kids heading down the San Tan Trail to the Stargazer trail junction where they’ll turn around and come zipping in to the finish line covering just about 1.3 total miles. The race is $8, kids receive a bib and custom finishers medal. Parents can head out with the little kids too, no problem. The course is relatively straight and flat, smooth, and wide which is kind of perfect for our beginner trail runners!

When you arrive, stop at the registration tent to either register your child or to fill out a quick information form and receive your bib if you’ve already registered online.
