RACE-DAY INFORMATION

Parents are allowed to run with their children, but are encouraged to let their little ones accomplish the race on their own.

PARENT BIBS

kidsbibs

The PARENT BIBS should be worn by the parent or guardian. If a parent has multiple kids participating, they should ALL of the bibs.

If a parent is planning to run with their kid, they should still wear the bib. In addition, the back of the kid’s bib should be filled out with all of the parent’s information.

Parents can watch their kids start and finish the race at Point Cadet Park.
There will be FIVE checkout areas located in the finish chute past the finish line. Children will be placed into one of the five checkout areas based on the LAST DIGIT on their bib. (1-2) (3-4) (5-6) (7-8) (9-0).

Only race personnel and kids participating in the race will be allowed in the finish chute and checkout areas.
The west side of the finish chute will have a PARENT CHECKOUT aisle. Once you see that your kid has been placed in a checkout area you can enter the aisle from the South, furthest from the finish line. Show your bib to the attendant and claim your child. Exit the aisle on the north side nearest the Finish Line. If you have multiple kids in different waves, you will need to exit the aisle and re-enter once your next kid is ready to be checked out.

If you do not have the bib that matches your kid’s bib, the attendant will look to verify the information you wrote on the back of the bib with your photo ID. If you can’t produce a photo ID or did not complete the information on the back of the bib, the attendant will direct you to one of our police partners who will work with you and the kid to turn over custody. PLEASE WEAR YOUR BIB AND COMPLETE THE INFORMATION ON THE BACK OF THE BIB to avoid any inconvenience on race day.
