50-yard dash for ages 4, 5 and 6; and a 20-yard tot-trot for ages 3 and under.
Parents are welcome to accompany the 3-and-under racers.
Medals will be given to all children who participate.
There will be no pre-registration or charge for the children’s races, but donations will be welcomed.

Race proceeds, after expenses, are donated to the Falmouth Education Foundation, whose mission is to “enhance educational excellence for the students of the Falmouth Public Schools … through our grants program that provides school staff with the knowledge and materials they need to remain at the frontier of educational excellence.” The foundation funds “innovative opportunities outside the schools' normal operating budgets.”
