Each series date takes place on designated Sundays (see flyer)  and offers age/grade appropriate distances for everyone. 

**Youth may run UP divisions, but not down divisions** ex: a 4 year old MAY run the 1/4 mile, but a 1st grader may NOT run the 75 meter dash

**Runners may not switch divisions once the series has started

  • 50 M Dash-Age 2
  • 75 M Dash-Ages 2 + 3

Incredi-Dash + Super Sprints are adaptive race distances for those with higher support needs who may need extra help during the race. These are the only divisions where adults/helpers are allowed on the course. 

NOTE: Exceptional youth are not excluded to only the Incredi-Dash or Super Sprint, they may run with typical peers, in their age-appropriate division, as appropriate.

Each week, runners will accumulate points based on their finish order and at the end of the series, awards will be presented to those with the highest cumulative points per division.

All participants receive a medal on the final week.
