Event description

Description

The Montessori School Rochester is proud to announce the inaugural National Children's Day, “Kid’s on the Go” fun run. This community event is a way to include children of all ages in running event just for them.

A portion of the proceeds will also benefit The Rainbow Connection in Rochester.

There will be two events: The "Montessori Milestone" loop will wind around the beautiful Municipal park's paved path while the "Tot-Trot" loop, which crosses the Paint Creek and passes the duck pond, is a perfect distance to introduce little ones to the excitement of running. Both non-competitive fun run events are open to all children!

After the run we invite you to relax and enjoy the area vendors and participate in the childrens' activities and free sports and fitness clinics and demos.

Every child who registers and completes either the Montessori Milestone or 1/3 mile Tot-Trot will receive a finisher's medal and t-shirt!**

THE COURSES

MONTESSORI MILESTONE

The Montessori Milestone is a run that follows the winding path through beautiful Rochester Municipal Park. This event is for all children who can, or just want to be able to run/jog or accomplish this approximatly 1.3 mile distance in a non-competitive and supportive environement. The Milestone route starts at the Kiwians shelter and winds to the North end of the park where runners will run two loops around the path that circles the playground. The course continues to the South side of the duckpond, then once again over the beautiful Paint Creek where runners will run through the finish chute where all who finish recieve a finisher's medal!
Note: This is not a timed nor scored event. Parents may escort children with event bibs.

TOT TROT

The Tot Trot is for our younger friends to "get their legs" under them and participate in the fun! This approximatly 1/3 mile non-competitive route winds through the park, crosses a bridge, ambles by the duckpond, then once again over the beautiful Paint Creek where runners will run through the finish chute where all who finish recieve a finisher's medal!
