Directions to Start

Pepto KIDS Run Run

The Pepto KIDS Run Run is a celebration of good health for children ages 5 to 10 years old. It is a non-competitive fun run on Second Street starting at 8:30am at the official race start. Parents may walk and push strollers with the children.

Course Description & Maps
The loop course on Second Street is 3/8 mile for the 5-10 year old. The flat and fast course will start and finish at the official start and finish lines of the 10k-so that all the children can be and finish with a flourish at the 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 fans everywhere.

All children receive a finisher's medal.



The event is $25 and children receive a free t-shirt, medal and other race goodies.
For ages 5-10, The Pepto KIDS Run Run:

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 so run to those spots. 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.

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

VIRTUAL EVENT

FAQS
Thinking of participating in the Western & Southern Thanksgiving Day 10k Run & Walk virtually this year? We can make that happen—and you can still get your turkey on the table in time!

See below for helpful information regarding the virtual option and what to expect if you select the virtual experience.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT? 
A virtual event allows participants to complete the race on their own. You will run or walk the race distance at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing. You choose your own race day and your own starting line, whether it’s a treadmill, a park or your neighborhood street. This option will allow those invested so heavily in their training to keep going and be rewarded for their efforts with the shirt and medal from their respective race(s).

DO I HAVE TO RUN MY VIRTUAL EVENT ON THANKSGIVING DAY? 
No, you choose your planned race date. 

WILL IT BE A SET COURSE OR ONE WE CAN MAKE UP?
Participants will be choosing their own route for the virtual event. It would be unsafe for us to provide a route that all could use at any specific time. Additionally, the geographic nature of our participants being all over the country/world makes that difficult.

WILL I HAVE TO USE MY PHONE, RUNNING WATCH OR OTHER DEVICE TO RECORD IT AND UPLOAD RESULTS?
We’re going to be on the honor system for completing the event. However, we will be asking participants to upload their finish time so we can have a results page. Please share your “finish line” photos on social media using the hashtag #____________ so we can see those “finish line poses.”

WILL THE RUNNING GLOVES AND HOODIES BE THE SAME FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?
Yes, everything is the same.

WHAT PARTICIPANT AMENITIES WILL I RECEIVE FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?
You will receive a running gloves, the goodie bag and a hoodies (if purchased) for the 10k—same as the others. For local residents, you will pick up everything during packet pick up hours at JackRabbit (Obryonville). For non-local residents and those unable to make an in-person pickup, we will mail to the address provided during the registration process for $7.

WILL THERE BE AWARDS FOR THE VIRTUAL EVENT?
As everyone will be on the honor system and submitting their own finish times, we will not be offering awards for the virtual event.
