The 3rd An­nual Hey Kid Run will take place Satur­day, May 16, at 9:30 a.m. at the Span­ish Fork Sports Park. With over 150 kids par­tic­i­pat­ing last year, this year is bound to be big­ger and full of fun.

Hey Kid Run is a one-of-a-kind. twom­ile run­ning event that is fully sup­ported and fo­cused on kids, for kids and teens only, ages 6-16 years old. There is also a 100-me­ter run for kids younger than 6, which hap­pens to be the funnest run for our spec­ta­tors. There will be lots of en­cour­age­ment and cheer­ing go­ing on.

The mis­sion of Hey Kid Run is to help en­sure a healthy, ac­tive and happy life­style for chil­dren start­ing at an early age. Hey Kid Run is set up to pro­vide kids and teens with the ex­pe­ri­ence of par­tic­i­pat­ing in a real run­ning event with­out the has­sle of adults on the course run­ning with them or with­out hav­ing to wait for mom and dad to start/fin­ish their run. This is their day, their run. Two Aid Sta­tions and plenty of vol­un­teers will be available through­out the course.

Hey Kid Run is part of the Play Un­plugged pro­gram and all run­ners will re­ceive a Play Un­plugged “Brag Tag.” Two-Mile Run par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive their brag tag, an event T-shirt and a goody bag. The 100-Me­ter Dash par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive their brag tag and a goody bag, not to men­tion their own per­son­al­ized “Race Bib” for them to keep and dis­play as a re­minder of their great ac­com­plish­ment.

The early reg­is­tra­tion is $10 (Jan. 1 through March 1). The nor­mal reg­is­tra­tion fee is $12 (March 2 through May 15). The same-day reg­is­tra­tion fee is $15. The reg­is­tra­tion fee for the 100-Me­ter Run is $5 (any­time - no shirt).
