This special Youth event will be on Tuesday, August 15. It offers younger runners the chance to carry a torch around the Sodus High School track and be part of history. Each runner’s lap around the track will count toward the week-long total goal of 200-miles.
The event is family-friendly and FREE for everyone. Runners must be at least age 5 or older. Families are encouraged to bring your "runner" kids and family to come cheer on your runner(s). A chaperone MUST attend the event with the runner(s).
Run T-shirts are available to purchase for $10. Payment is due at the event by cash or Venmo.
Runners will be scheduled into flights of similar ages to complete their choice of 1, 2 or 4 laps around the track. (1 lap = ¼ mile or 400 meters) Laps are not timed. This is not a competition for placement, just completion.
Each runner will be announced before their flight, will receive a runners’ bib and an honorary medal. They will pose for a quick post-run photo with the torch after they complete their lap(s).
History Walk for families onsite and Bounce equipment. Concessions provided by Sodus Sports Boosters.
