For children ages 2-9, we offer an exciting opportunity to participate in the Turkey Trot Miami Kids Race. All registered children will receive a child’s size cotton t-shirt (2022 pictured below) and a holiday-inspired finisher medal!
Races will be run in the following order with the following distances:
- 2-3 years – 100 meters
- 4-5 years – 200 meters
- 6-7 years – 400 meters
- 8-9 years – 600 meters
Kids Race participants will meet promptly at 9:15 AM in the Kids Race Gathering Area located on the south side of the bleachers on the east side of the stadium (the right side of the stadium when facing towards Bird Rd) A staff member will then escort each of the groups to the corresponding starting area per age category (see on map below) at 9:20 AM. The races will start at 9:30 AM, beginning with the youngest age group (2-3 year-olds), followed by rolling starts of the next oldest age group through the 8-9 year-old group who will start last.
All Kids Race participants will be funneled into their own corralling area just past the Finish Line where parents are to meet and retrieve their children immediately following their child’s race wave. *IMPORTANT* Parents/guardians MUST remove the “Guardian” tab from their child’s bib prior to race start in order to retrieve their child from the corralling area at the Finish Line.
Parents may NOT run on the track with their children and must remain on the grassy areas next to the track.
