Popsicle Stick Run Challenge for Kids

Join SoundRUNNER at the Fairfield Health & Fitness Expo for some fun on the track! See how fast you can get rid of your popsicle sticks! Each participant will run 3 laps totaling 480m (or 0.3 miles). After each lap, participants will hand a popsicle stick to a volunteer. When they run out of sticks, they will have one lap to go! (Popsicle sticks will be provided.)

We will be conducting heats every 15 minutes by age group. Kids ages 5 to 12 are welcome to participate. Each participant will receive a finisher certificate!
