DUE TO THE CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS WE HAVE DECIDED TO RESCHEDULE THE GILMAN KIDS XC RACE. MORE DETAILS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONCE A NEW DATE HAS BEEN CHOSEN. FOR MORE INFORMATION AND UPDATES PLEASE REFER TO THE CHARM CITY RUN FACEBOOK PAGE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
The Charm City Run Kids X-Country Series consists of seven races for girls and boys 12 and under. While top runners in each group win medals, the series is intended to be a fun, non-competitive, family-friendly introduction to running and all runners will "win" ribbons. Parents are welcome to run with their kids to encourage them and perhaps get a little exercise themselves!

SPONSORED BY SAUCONY AS PART OF THE RUN4GOOD FOUNDATION
It is great to see kids be active, healthy and get support from family and friends while doing it. However, there's still an alarming issue regarding childhood obesity. Our sponsor partner, Saucony, supports the Run4Good Foundation, which raises awareness, funds and provides funding for programs to fight this issue.
The Kids XC Series is a rain or shine event, and the race will go on as planned unless thunder and/or lightning is detected at race time, or other extreme weather is present. Standard practice is to wait 30 minutes after lightning or thunder is detected to begin the race. If after waiting 1 hour we still have lightning and/or thunder in the area will will be forced to cancel the race. Unfortunately, race registration fees cannot be refunded.
Please no baby joggers, strollers, roller blades, skates, bikes, dogs, pets or headphones allowed on the race course. Your race number must be worn on your front and must be visible. DO NOT exchange or give your number to another participant.
