This will be a third annual event hosted by the Grant Playground and Recreation Association that will take place at Grant City Park located at 401 Kidtopia Park Rd (formerly Park Road). This event is held in memory of the late Dan Robinson whose love for God and country was known by many throughout our community. Dan was instrumental in the formation of our non-profit organization and laid the groundwork for the development of Kidtopia playground. The proceeds from this event will benefit Kidtopia and help support its continued needs.
This year we are planning more than just a race. Race participants will get unlimited, early access to a host of fun after-race activities including hair painting, inflatables, face painting, a balloon artist, and more. There will also be food available for purchase.
The 5K and (New for 2022!) 10K Race: The 5k is a USTAF certified walk/run race and both races will begin at Grant City Park, travel through the scenic mountain town of Grant. The course is mostly flat with a few inclines, including "Cardiac Hill" at the end. Volunteers and directional signs will be strategically posted along the routes to help guide runners in the right direction. A water and first aid station will be set up near the halfway point of the 5K, which is approximately mile 3.75 of the 10K. These races will end back at Grant City Park in front of Kidtopia playground. Rehydration & nutritious snacks will be available before and after the races.
Please note that you must register by May 26th to be guaranteed a t-shirt!
