Notes to Parents: We kindly request that parents refrain from helping their kids during the event. We will have plenty of volunteers assisting if a child needs help at any point during the event. Whether that be putting on a shirt, tying shoe laces, etc. If you would like to become an official event volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help whoever needs help during the event, without giving special treatment to your son/daughter. In our experience, being hands off, letting them struggle a little bit, is a much more rewarding experience for your children and a much more gratifying experience that they’ll share with you when crossing the finish line.

Additional Purchases: Kids Technical BOCO Trucker: $20
We have to say, they are about the cutest hats ever. Unlike those that cut corners with kid’s products, BOCO kids hats have all the bells and whistles as mom or dads technical trucker hats. Whether your kids are racing themselves or cheering from the sidelines, BOCO miniature trucker hats will keep your kid cool and comfy all day.
