The Rock4Kids "Zombie Run" is the first in our series of three runs for kids during the 2013-2014 academic year. Brought to you by Bass Pro Shops and Care to Learn, the event is open to kids pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Families may run together but they must all register if each person wishes to receive a shirt.
Kid's may choose to run one of four distances and don't need to choose a distance at registration. There will be zombies on the course for the older kids and routes will also offer fall festival themes.
The $13 registration fee also covers play in the Rutledge Wilson Farm Park. There will be many events open to kids including hay rides, the corn maze, inflatable slides and more. The Parks is making this great discounted offer available to all race participants and their families. A paper bracelet will allow kids into the various activities.
Finishers receive Rock4Kids medals and t-shirts.
People who register on or after October 13 will see a $5/person price increase.
