2017 ROCK4KIDS Running Series

PAINT THE RUN IS CANCELED!
So very sorry everyone, but the rain has made itimpossible to run tonight. The fields have pools of water standing on them and it would not be safe
for the kids to run the cross country course. Additionally, the paint won't stick in this kind of rain.

So, what's next? Everyone who registered for the Paint the Run will be transferred to the Polar Bear Run which takes place on Saturday, June 17th. We are working with our registration team to make this process as easy
as possible. On Tuesday of next week, each of you will receive an email allowing you to edit your registration. Once that process is complete, you will be registered for the Polar Bear Run. If you have not run that event before, it is a blast! We start outside Hammons Field, run through the ice in Jordan Valley Park, and finish in right field, just before the Cardinals game. Your registration for this event gets you general admission tickets to the game for free.

Most people have picked up their packets. You won't receive the Polar Bear Run T-shirt since you have your Paint the Run shirt. However, you will receive the Polar Bear Run medal, a great finish line and all the fun things involved in this event. Additionally, we ask that you wear your Paint the Run Shirts as we will take your group picture and potentially, still throw some paint at you! If you did not pick up your packet and are an Elite Feet participant, we will deliver the packet to your school in the next week. If you are not with Elite Feet, we will hold your packet for you and you can pick it up at the Polar Bear Run packet pick up. Sorry about tonight! We love this event and it is frustrating to cancel. Keep running, walking and being active!

Reigistration Opens February 8

The more that kids walk, run, ride their bikes or take part in any physical activity, the more the message of health and wellness is integrated into our community.  

If parents, guardians, friends or family members wish to be on the course, they must be a registered participant. Due to liability reasons, anyone on the course including children in strollers, must be a registered runner/walker in the Rock4Kids events. The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series has a NO REFUND policy. Refunds will not be given for any reason.
