Youth FAST FEET - Because of a continued generous sponsorship from the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) we are able to once again offer our annual themed runs and fun walks for FREE to Yuma school children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade as we encourage kids to get active and be healthy.   Note:  Children may participate in all of the 2016-2017 runs and walks.   

Upon completion of each run, Fast Feet runners will receive their time, a special token for either the 5K run (3.1 miles) or 10K run (6.2 miles).  In addition Gold, Silver and Bronze medallions are awarded in each separate age group (9 and under) (10-12) (13-15).

Five Star Walkers at any age who participate in 5 out of the 6 Fun Walks will receive a certificate at the end of the series.  Please note:  Those who received a timed bib will not be allowed to transfer their points to the 5 Star Walker program.  

2016/2017 City Champion Plaque - Winners will be determined by awarded points to participants who successfully complete at least three of the City sponsored series of 5k or 10k runs.  Runners may not transfer their points from a 5k or 10k.  Awards that are clinched before the final race may be picked up at City Hall Parks and Recreation office on March 16th.  

Course Description – Most of the courses are paved or on groomed trails.  At times the course may be rugged and graveled in areas.  Please plan accordingly with proper shoes and strollers.  Enjoy the scenery and nature.
