Kids Fun Runs

The Davis Turkey Tot includes four non-competitve events for kids ages 12 and Under:Kids Run Finish Line

  • 1 Mile Fun Run (11:00 am)
  • 1/2 Mile Fun Run (11:15 am)
  • 1/4 Mile Fun Run (11:30 am)
  • Toddler Trot 200 yard dash (ages 0-4) (11:45 am)

All the kid’s fun runs start at the Kid’s Run Start Arch on B Street, just south of the 5K/10K finish arch. All four courses finish on the south end of Civic Center Field underneath the arch (pictured to the right).

The Kid’s Fun Runs are not timed and no clock is present at the finish line. Every child is viewed as a winner and received an official 2008 Davis Turkey Tot finisher’s ribbon.

Before and after the event, we invite all kids to our huge Kids Fun Area, which includes inflatable jumps, arts and crafts, vendor booths, snacks, and more. Your child will be entertained for hours!

FAQ regarding the Kids Runs:

Q: My child is 10 years old. Do they have to enter a particular distance in the kid’s races?

A: No. The kid’s fun runs are open to all kids ages 0-12. The only restriction is on the Toddler Trot, which is for ages 0-4 years. Your child may choose the distance (1/4, 1/2 or 1 mile) that best suits him/her.

Q: May I run alongside my child during their run?

A: Absolutely! We want this to be a positive experience for both you and your child.
