In continuing with PrairieCare's mission of treating and bringing health and wellness to children and adolescents, PrairieCare is paying for every kids registration into this event. Thank you!

Kids Play Zone:
During the expo we will have a kids play zone with activities and bounce houses by Prairie Care. The Kids Play Zone will also be available on Sunday, outside near the finish chute!

The Kids Marathon presented by Prairie Care Medical Group is free for preregistered runners, courtesy of Prairie Care. Sign up early, walk up registration at the expo is $5. There are medals for all finishers and t-shirts can be added to your child's registration for $10. The course is 1.2 miles long. The start is at the back side of Mayo Civic Center and the finish is the big finish for all the races on East Center Street. The course is all on trails to keep the kids same from vehicle traffic.  We also have many volunteers out there helping to direct and cheer on the runners.

Race Day Instructions:
Event announcements begin at 12:15. Please have your child in the parking lot behind the civic center ready to line up in their specific grade by noon. Please stay with your child until their grade level is called to run.

The first run (6th-8th graders) will begin at 12:30. We will work our way down through the grades ending with Kindergarten.

Your child will receive a bib (race number) which should be pinned to their shirt. On the bottom of their bib is a ticket to claim your child at the end of the race. Take off the tear away ticket before they run and hold onto it so you can be matched with your child at the color coded security gates in the finish area. For security, all children will remain in the finish area until an adult with the matching ticket claims them.

The only adults allowed to cross the finish line are those running with Kindergartners. Other adults are welcome to run the course with their child, but they need to pull off before entering the finish chute.

We are hoping for nice weather, but we will still run in the rain! If there is lightening in the area we will postpone the event until the lightening passes.

Let’s have a great race!
