WeeRace Kids 1 Mile Fun Run & Roll
WeeRace Kids 1 Mile Fun Run & Roll is for children and teenagers of all levels and abilities. We are here to inspire, encourage, support and promote physical fitness for children of all ages. Everyone needs to move and spend time together outside. This is a non-competitive race to inspire kids to move with support from peers while having family and friends cheer for them on the sidelines!
Due to the July 2017 Flooding of Grayslake the 2017 WeeRace has been cancelled.
If you registered for the race this year, please contact Ally Simpson at email@example.com for more information.
