REGISTER HERE Starting May 1
Start/Finish, Run will be held auxiliary parking lot across from the 944th FW HQ on Super Sabre St.
As part of Armed Forces Day activities in May each year, military bases and dependants here in the United States, Greece, Puerto Rico, Germany, Japan, England, and Italy will participate in America’s Armed Forces Kids Run.
Over the years 120,000 children have earned their own tee shirt by completing the annual spring run.
This year 5 & 6 year olds kids will run ½ mile which starts at 10:00am, with the 7 & 8 year olds running 1 mile starting at 10:15am and 9-18 year olds running 2 miles starting at 10:30am.
Parents may accompany their child during the run if needed. But we encourage youth to build self-confidence and run alone.
Come out, have fun and get a free t-shirt.
Your child is participating in the world’s largest children’s running event. Congratulations and have fun!
