The kids run is for those 12 and under that do not wish to run or walk the entire 5K or 10K distance. The older kids and those capable of running a mile will do a lap around the perimeter of Soldier Field. We will have shorter "heats" for all ages of children, toddler and up! **REGISTRATION FOR THE KIDS RACE DOES NOT INCLUDE A TIMING DEVICE FOR THE 5K or 10K COURSES. IF A CHILD WISHES TO BE TIMED IN THESE EVENTS, HE OR SHE SHOULD BE REGISTERED AS AN ADULT!**


Team Captains MUST register first and will create their team during the registration process. Team Members will register after the team captain has registered and created the team. Team members will then select their team name from the drop down box on the registration form. Prizes will be given for largest team, biggest fundraising team, fastest team, more TBA!
