My nine year old daughter and I participated in the 5K portion of this event this year and last year (1st and 2nd annual). This is a great run for families with small children. A relatively large proportion of the runners were kids (unlike many 5Ks, where our daughter is often the only one under 15); she loved running with lots of other children (and playing before and after the race). The course is largely flat, open, is on a good surface and is very safe, so you can let your child run at her own pace and not worry about her; much of the course is visible from most other points on the course. There are lots of supportive adults around to help, as well. It really feels as though the local community turns out to support the runners, and there was great post-race food. We are looking forward to the 3rd annual! - Phillip Crawford
