We are holding our second annual Whole Children’s Wild Goose Chase in Look Park on May 22 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This event combines 6 different races for all ages, 0-99, ranging from a 5K race down to a 26.2 meter race for children ages 0-3, which is just over 28.5 yards! All children who race will receive a beautiful gold medal. There will be trophies awarded for all age categories in the 5K as well as to the top finishers in the 1.2 mile fun run and walk. The 5K and the 1.2 mile race will be chip timed.
There will be a children’s carnival taking place at the same time as the races. Included in the $15 cost for children are unlimited horse-drawn wagon rides, a photo booth with silly props or not, opportunities to try out stilt walking, juggling sticks, hula hooping, and yo-yoing. You can also get your face painted, climb on a fire truck and see the inside of a police cruiser. There will be many games with prizes for all participants and live music for all to enjoy. All registrants will receive a water bottle, and a coupon for Bueno Y Sano.
