MeltFest is all about fun!

And our kids run is just that!

Designed for youngsters that are not ready for a full 5K. 

Totally free and totally fun!  

Distances will vary depending on youth ages (all youth are welcome). 

Awards for all that participate.

Advance registration will open around March 1 (so we can plan for your kiddos – again totally free)

Here are the details:

  • The kids run is offered free of charge to all children 12 and under.
  • Participants in the kids run will run a short out and back course.
  • The kids run will be broken up into age groups to allow for kids of the same age to run together.  In addition, younger kids will run a course of shorter distance.
  • All finishers will receive a finisher award.
  • All kids run participants will get to take part in a small post-run kids snack table (small snacks, candy, water, etc.).
  • The race will not be timed.  The goal behind the kids fun run is for the kids to get to experience the joy of running.
  • The first wave of the kids run will start at approximately 11:00 a.m.
  • A parent or guardian can escort the child on the route if desired.
  • A limited number of commemorative t-shirts will be available for purchase (if you are interested).

The Kids Run is FREE!  But we do cap it at 125 participants. 

As of Thursday (3/22) a few spots remain.
