BUSEY YOUTH RUN FUNZONE
Celebrate youth fitness with the Busey Youth Run Funzone! Let local children’s vendors keep your little racer entertained as they wait their turn to take the field. Located in the Great East Hall, festivities will begin at 1 p.m. and run through 3 p.m. on race day, April 28. Festivities will close prior to the singing of the National Anthem.
Youth run entrants all get an awesome 100% cotton pre-shrunk T-shirt, a drawstring backpack, and a finisher’s medal.
Postrace food, served in the Great West Hall, includes Wisconsin Mac from Noodles & Company, delicious cookies from Einstein Bros. Bagels, chocolate milk from Prairie Farms, and other goodies.
To guarantee a shirt, you must register by April 18. Youth shirt sizes
run as follows: Youth XS (2-4), Youth S (6-8), Youth M (10-12), Youth L
(14-16), Youth XL (18-20).
