Despite the low price (hint: the entry fee is part of the name, and the races are free for kids 17 and under!), these races are a great value, very well-organized, chip timed, and don’t skimp on the amenities. A climbing wall, music, kids’ activities, and vendors are present at all the races. There’s also a kids fun run before each race.
