Kid's Fun Run

The McDonald's Kids Run is a celebration of good health for children ages 5 to 12 years old.

This non-competitive event is held on Second Street and is started in "waves" by age group.
For ages 5-11, McDonald's Half K Kids Run: start at 8:35 am

Parents may walk and push strollers with the children.

Course Description & Maps:
The loop course is a half K for the 5-11 year olds. The loop course on second street allows the children to start and finish at the official start and finish lines and under the race banners - just like Mom and Dad! The children will turn at the cones on Second Street so that the event is safe and allows for maximum cheering - from Mom and Dad!

All children receive a finisher's medal.


The event is $10 and children receive a free t-shirt while supplies last.

Packet pick up is during the same times as listed for adult packet pick up.

Free Parking

There are over 5000 free parking spots available in the surface parking lots by Paul Brown Stadium. They are gobbled up really fast (just like you run)!

It pays to get there early and fast.
Parking Map

If you miss them, the race recommends that you park in any of the lots downtown or along the streetcar route and take the STREETCAR to the start.

The Perfect Tag Timing

Disposable bib-tags!

The tag is a small device which will be attached to the back of your race number to record your net time. It doesn't matter if you start at the back of the pack, walk the race, or get squished at the start. The tag will start your official time when you cross the computer pads at the starting line, and stop when you cross the finish line. Your results will be online.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you can't run or walk, how about volunteering? It's so much fun and your efforts will benefit our charities! There are registration hours, water stations, party set-up, race day marshals and more. Contact us at thanksgivingdayrace.com/contact-us.html
