Sign Up

One-Mile Family Fun Run

This event is designed for children aged five through 12 who are able to complete the one-mile distance on their own. Parents or guardians are encouraged to run alongside their children and do not need to register to do so.

Tot Trot

This event is for tykes ages four and under who are capable of running or walking the distance. Watch the adorable trot of kids running down a 50-yard walled chute to their own finish line as an announcer officiates the race.

Diaper Dash

Can't quite walk yet? Not a problem. The Diaper Dash allows for the youngest contestants to dash across protective mats. So if your child is starting to walk but isn't too solid on his/her feet, this is a safe bet.



All registered children will receive a commemorative medal and Dollar Bank Junior Great Race t-shirt in addition to a goodie bag, hot dog courtesy of Café at the Point and a scrumptious Smiley Cookie from Eat’n Park.


Join us for pre and post-race activities in Point State Park beginning at 9:30 a.m.
