MCRRC is excited to bring back youth running events in 2022. Please know that our youth races will follow COVID protocols as required by state and local health authorities at the time of the event, but will otherwise look much like “regular kids’ runs.” This means you can generally expect groups of kids bunched up at the start, laughing, cheering, maybe a couple trips and falls, probably some parents jockeying for good camera angles, and maybe a treat at the end. With COVID still circulating in the community, we understand not everyone will be comfortable in this environment but hope to see those of you who are on race day! Please note that by participating in this event, parents & guardians accept full responsibility for their minor’s participation.
There will be no timing chips used for the young runs. The runs are FREE, but all participants must be registered by a parent or guardian on race day.
Health & Wellness:
Now more than ever, please pay close attention to your health prior to attending this event. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or another person with COVID-19, please stay home. If you have cold symptoms, a mild fever, or just “don’t feel well,” we ask that you please stay home. All participants are subject to temperature checks at the discretion of our race staff.
MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers. Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event – please click here to volunteer!
