Training Basics

Bring the Kids (ages 4-11) to the B.A.A. 10K

Kids between four and 11 years old compete in races on Boston Common. The race distances will depend on the age of the participants, with four- and five-year-olds competing in the shortest distance, and ten- and 11-year-olds competing in the longest distance (approximately 400 meters) on Charles Street. No pre-registration is necessary. Sign up your child on race morning. All participants will receive a bib number and participation award.

  • There is no entry fee for this event.
  • Events will not be timed and results will not be recorded.
  • Arrive prior to the event to register near the ball fields next to the start and finish area.
  • Parents, guardians and/or grown-ups should accompany kids and will be able to sign-up for the races beginning at 8:00 a.m. on race morning.

EVENT FORMAT

Sprint racing and an obstacle course, followed by "distance" races. Kids will have the opportunity to run the stations multiple times. Ten- and 11-year-olds will be escorted to Charles Street for the street race. There will be a separate boys and girls street race.
