Jr River Runner's Assembly Area
The assembly area for this event will be inside the Fairgrounds near the starting line. Each group will assemble in this area about 20 minutes prior to their starting time. Each group will then be moved to Duval Street for the start of their race. Parents can run with their children if necessary, but for the utmost safety of all participants, if you think your child can handle this event without you, we would appreciate your waiting for the child at the finish line.
Getting Ready for the Junior River Run in School Training Program
If your school is interested in the In School Training Program and has not participated before, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All students who participate in the eight week training program will receive a free adidas "Training for the Junior River Run" t-shirt in addition to the regular Junior River Run shirt, and an entry into the adidas Junior River Run to be held on March 9, 2013. The purpose of the program is to familiarize our youth with the benefits of exercise and of course get them ready for race day. The ideal is to have the children run 8.3 miles in their training program, and then run one mile on River Run Day. That would mean they have covered the full 15K distance. We hope your school will get involved and help us make this the largest Junior River Run to date.
