Kids Run (K-8th Grade)

How it Works

In place of our past year’s Kids Half Marathon, we are offering the One-Mile Fun Run on the Garden Spot Village campus at 433 S. Kinzer Ave. on Friday evening at 6pm, March 24, 2023. Kids need to register for the race before March 14, to guarantee a t-shirt and medal.

The kids will get a t-shirt and a unique numbered bib as a part of their registration fee and the finisher’s medal.

The idea is to not only get kids active, but to introduce them to running and give them an authentic race experience.

What it Offers

Welcome to the Garden Spot Village Kids Fun Run
co- hosted by Girls on the Run and Garden Spot Village 1/2 Marathon and 10K.

Garden Spot Village and Girls on the Run want to provide a running experience for our youngest runners in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Kids benefit from a closed, safe course on the Garden Spot Village campus, and experience the thrill of a race start and finish. Kids get a finisher’s medal, and a t-shirt, as well as the thrill of a cheering crowd congratulating them.

Kids also get an ice-cream treat, a whoopie pie, and a visit from Mr. Whoop E. Pie, from our Kids Race Sponsor, Shady Maple. Mr. Pie will be available for pictures and high-fives!

The Garden Spot Village 1/2 Marathon & 10K introduced a new course in 2019 and is located in the midst of beautiful Lancaster County farmland.
