Dunkin' Munchkin Kids Fun Run
Get the kids involved in all of the fun of Philadelphia Marathon Race Weekend! Join us for the Dunkin’ Munchkin Runs, short distance, and non-competitive events for youngsters up to 12 years of age. Each age group will enjoy dashes, half mile or full mile distances on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Because this run is all about fun, runners will not be timed.
Family Fun Activities - Pre-race activities kick off at 11:00 a.m. and include face painting, caricature and balloon artists, games, and more!
Age Group Dashes (Children ages 3 to 12) - The Dunkin’ Munchkin Run activities will include a series of shortdistance dashes, beginning at noon. Each age group will have a separate race with age-appropriate distances. Participants will receive special goodies and giveaways.
Mile and Half Mile Kids Fun Run (Children ages 6 to 12) - Mile and Half Mile races will begin immediately following the dashes. Participants will get the thrill of running on the AACR Philadelphia Marathon course! Participants will receive a finisher medal and t-shirt.
To join the run, children must have a parent or guardian present. Waivers are required and will be available on site. Please note: Adults are not allowed to take part in the race.
Notes: Shuttle bus service will run continuously from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. To get to the race site, board the shuttle just outside the Expo, 12th & Arch Streets. The last pre-race shuttle leaves at 11:00 a.m.
At the race site, the shuttle will drop off at River Field (24th and Park Towne Place). The last shuttle will leave that same location at 2:00 p.m.
