Come out to the first ever kids only trail race in Flagler County! This race is part of the "Where the Wild Ones Run" kid trail running series. Check out the website for all the info! Graham Swamp Preserve on Colbert Lane (mountain bike & hiking trails). NOT Graham Swamp on Old Kings Rd.
We believe that kids should experience the joy, challenge and accomplishment of running through the woods. We also believe that doing something hard, like running, can be fun and rewarding. Trail running can be extra special and fun and we believe kids appreciate and benefit from the wildness of it.
FOR NOW WE WILL ONLY BE LAUNCHING ONE RACE TO GET THINGS KICKED OFF. THEN WE WILL ADD THE OTHERS AND FORM THE SERIES. FINDING 3 DATES THAT WORKED FOR THE PARKS AND KIDS SCHEDULES HAS BEEN CHALLENGING SO WE JUST NEED TO GET STARTED! WE'LL HAVE OUR FIRST EVENT AT GRAHAM SWAMP ON APRIL 1ST.
Wild Boar Run at Graham Swamp: Beautiful and wild! This course has it all. Twist and turns, roots, rocks, climbs and descents. We will utilize some of the hiking trail and some of the mountain bike trail.
Age groups and distances:
3-5 year olds: <1/2 mile
6-9 year olds: ~1.5 miles
10-13 year olds: ~3 miles
Every kid will receive an awesome wooden finishers medal!
We will present awards to the top 3 girls and boys in each age group.
Post-race refreshments will be served. We will not hand out any single use water bottles, we ask that you also do not bring any disposable plastic. Please bring a reuseable water bottle to refill from our drink station.
Every racer will be timed.
What's the cost?
If you would like your child to participate but the registration fee is a barrier, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on sponsored entries.
If you would like to sponsor a child, please contact email@example.com or choose the "sponsor a wild one" option when registering your child. We are also collecting donations and raising funds to purchase new running shoes for kids that need financial help. We believe every child should have access to proper running shoes. Running can shape and change lives, we want to eliminate obstacles of getting started.
