Kids Challenge & Fun Run

Are you looking for a way to get your child motivated or to encourage them to start running?! Sign them up for the Windermere Marathon or Half Marathon Kids Challenge and Fun Run! Kids will have the whole month of May to log miles making their way to completing a marathon or half marathon distance. They can run/walk the distance over a few days or all month long. All kids registered for the kids challenge will have the opportunity to run 1/2 mile on Sunday, May 19th at Riverfront Park. All finishers will be awarded their medal and shirt at packet pick-up on Saturday, May 18th or Sunday May 19th.  Any kids unable to pick-up their shirt and medal will have it mailed to them the week after the race.

Kids Challenge Info:

1. Run miles throughout the month
2. Submit results daily/weekly or all at the end

  • Kids Run bib & packet pick-up: Kids race check-in at either packet pickup on Saturday (location TBD) or race morning in Riverfront Park (Clock Tower) on Sunday, May 19.
    • Parents please write your name and contact phone number on the back of your child's bib in the case of an emergency.
  • Kids Run Start Time: 11:00am | Sunday, May 19
    • SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SAFETY! Parents, this is not a closed or fenced off course. The course will be well marked and staffed with volunteers, but it is your responsibility to make sure your child makes it to the finish line. Parents are welcome to run with their kids for free and help encourage them and take pictures along the way. Please be a responsible parent and know your child's limits and capabilities. The kid's race is not 15-minutes of baby-sitting. Your child is still your responsibility. Help us to ensure this is a safe and positive experience for all our Windermere kids run participants.
1/2-Mile Course: 

The kids 1/2-mile course runs in a circle in Riverfront Park finishing at the clock tower. There will be water available at the finish line. All kids will start together at 11:00am. Parents are encouraged to run with their child.
