    My husband plans on running his first half and I plan on running the full during the Marathon Weekned in January. My 2 year old son enjoys watching us run and always wants to run with us. How old do kids need to be to participate in the kids fun run?

    Hi Mercedes!  It sounds like you have a really fun weekend planned!

    The kids races are so much fun and there are races for all ages.  They will receive a t-shirt, personalized bib, medal, and refreshments.  It really makes them feel like one of the "runners".  My boys loved doing the Kids races!   Here is the breakdown:
