Race Day: Saturday, December 9th
–Race Start Time: 8:00 AM
–Start Line: On the road, in front of the Von Braun Center, on Monroe Street
–One Mile Race Route: The kids will run 2 loops, on Monroe Street, in front of the Von Braun Center, before running into the Propst Arena, to finish the run.
–Finish Line: Inside the Von Braun Center-Propst Arena
–Finish Line and Reuniting with Child: As each child crosses the finish line, they will receive their finisher’s medal. Then, they will be escorted, by race volunteers, to the food area, underneath the Propst Arena bleachers, to pick-up water and a snack. Finally, all children will be escorted, by race volunteers, to the Kids Reunion Area, which is located next to the main entrance of the Von Braun Center-Propst Arena. Parents/Guardians will be reunited with their child/children at the Kids Reunion Area. Parents/Guardians will not be allowed to enter the Propst Arena floor, cross the finish line with their child, or have access to the food area. This ensures the safety of each race participant.
–Race Bibs: Race bibs must be worn on the front of shirts, so the numbers are visible. Prior to the start of the race, parents/guardians are required to detach the claim tag off their child’s race bib. The claim tag must be presented at the Kids Reunion Area, for parents/guardians to be reunited with their child. If you have multiple children, please tear off the claim tags from all of the race bibs. Children will not be allowed to leave the Kids Reunion Area, until their parent/guardian turns in their claim tag.
–Course Sentries and Pacers: There will be assigned course sentries along the course, to make sure race participants stay on the course and do not get lost. There will also be pacers running the 1 mile with the children for guidance and assistance. These volunteers will have on yellow safety vests or long sleeve, red volunteer shirts. Parents/Guardians will not be allowed on the race course, unless they are volunteering as a course sentry or pacer.
–Photos: The Kids Rocket City Marathon pictures will be provided by We Run-Race Photos. A direct link to view pictures will be sent to you, shortly after the race.
