Parent participation in the Tot Trot
Parent participation in the Tot Trot is for safety purposes. Please have only one parent accompanying each child (if needed). The adults do NOT need to sign up for the Tot Trot. Please be mindful of other children to ensure they all have a safe and enjoyable run for kids. Older children are encouraged to run on their own, with parents cheering/watching from the side. Registering for the 5k allows both you and your child to be participants (on foot or in a stroller).
The Tot Trot will start in the same location as the 5k. You can’t miss it!
Adult cooperation during race line-up ensures a fun race experience for all. Please line up your older racers who are running solo at the start line and younger racers accompanied by an adult at the back. This will allow all kids a chance to run! Parents, we love your enthusiasm and encourage you to cheer your kids to the finish line. For kids 4 & under, one parent* is allowed to accompany a small child for safety purposes without registering. For children running solo, please designate a spot off to the side after the finish line for your kids to meet you after their run.
Tot Trot Prize
All Tot Trot participants are #1 in our eyes, and will receive a prize after they cross the finish line for their efforts! Make sure to register early to ensure your child receives a prize!
Family Fun Area
The celebration continues at the Family Fun Area with food, free games, face painting, candy collection, photo booth, and sponsor tables. More Info
