Kids Fun Run Course
There will be a Kids Fun Run around the Wellesley High School track starting at 9:00a.m., following the Wonder Run 5K. Kids ages 6 and under will run 1 lap around the track, and then kids ages 7-10 will run 2 laps around the track. If your child loves to run and wants to run the 5k, they are welcome to sign up for the 5k instead of the Fun Run. The Kids Fun Run is proudly presented by SDSS Martial Arts of Wellesley. Sensei Nicco DeMasco will be on hand with kid-friendly activities before the event. The Wonder Run is fun for the whole family!
