Kids don't receive a free Pilgrimage Run shirt in the Free Kids Run so we offer a Kids Pack option! They'll each receive an authentic youth Pilgrimage Run shirt, bib number, and other free gear! Participation in the Kids Run is not necessary. If your kid would like to enter the 2Mile or 4Mile, it's best to sign them up for either of those.

*This is not registration for any of the runs.

 

Only $15  

*Due to the updated process for 2020, we will not have an 'official' Kids Run in 2020. However, if your kids would like to do an 'un-official' Kids Run, we will orchestrate this for each of you after your finish/wave start. Please visit our announcer at the finish line scaffold tower.

 

Ok Kids, get ready to show your parents what you're made of! This is always a huge hit at our events, and simple for all kids to participate. It's roughly a 400 yard course at the finish line area.
