Fall Series for Kids is a series of fun races for kids of all kinds held in 4 different City and County Parks.  There are 5 separate age divisions of progressively increasing length of trail runs.  The age of the participant does not necessarily reflect the age...whatever is achievable.


  1. “Toddler Trot” (ages 0-3) – will start with 25 yards for Race #1 and progress to 50 yards by Race #4.

  2. “Preschool” (ages 4-5) – will start with 1/4 mile for Race #1 and progress to 600 yards by  Race #4.

  3. “Primary” (ages 6-8) will start at 600 yards for Race #1 and progress to 3/4 mile by Race #4.

  4. “Intermediate” (ages 9-11) – will start with 3/4 mile for Race #1 and progress to 1-1/4 mile by Race #4.

  5. “Middle School” (ages 12+) – will start with 1-1/2mile for Race #1 and progress to 3 miles by Race #4.
