Hundreds of young participants turn out to show their determination and pride. The Junior Fun Run is open to children in grades five and below. Fourth and 5th graders run a mile, 3rd graders run three-quarters of a mile, 1st and 2nd graders run half a mile, kindergarten students run one-quarter mile, and students under 5 years old run 50-75 yards. The Fort Myers Track Club helps to make this a fantastic, active event for the children and many children run year after year!
There is a $5.00 entry fee, which includes a t-shirt and ribbon, for all children wishing to participate (while supplies last).
