This race was created as a safe, fun, competitive event for kids in grades Kindergarten through 8th. Initiated by a concerned PE teacher about a big city event that had lost its focus on what is important, Run Franklin was tasked with coming up with an alternative. This event was designed to be the same feel as any other “adult” race, but it is just for kids. Much emphasis has been placed on a fun and safe environment with the same excitement and feel of a “big” event. This race is locally operated and timed by friends and neighbors. We take all comments and feedback into consideration and would love to hear how you would like to see this event work for this year and years to come.
