Main details
Running ... What makes this word a mom, a teacher or a coach think of? The child they bring up and teach.
Children do not care what the weather or the ground is like; they run anyway if they have a little spare time.
We would like them to continue doing exercise in their adolescence and adulthood too. That is why we, as running race organizers as well as parents, place increasing emphasis on children’s running races.
Years ago we already took a great step when we organized kids’ races on a separate day, on the Saturday before the big race. Many enthusiastic children and parents came to the opening day’s events. Moreover, more of them came than we had expected. The race office could hardly manage the registration of the entries and there were also a lot of people on the running track at the same time. That is why it became necessary to adjust the procedures of the children’s races to the adult ones. So, everything will be the same as for the real, big runners.


AGE GROUPS

Children aged 0-3 run together with their parents, hand in hand, in boy-girl races. They are the “Clattering Feet”.
Those aged 4-14 run in groups based on each year. So, every child competes with others in their age group.
 

THE SCHEDULE OF CHILDREN’S RAce

  • parents may accompany their children only in the “Clattering Feet” event (ages 0-3)
  • registration, which is still free, takes place on Friday from 17:00 and on Saturday morning from 08:00 in the race office, where every child entrant has to fill in the entry form, which can also be downloaded on our website by parents and teachers and can be brought with them filled in
  • the entry form has to be signed by a parent, who also takes responsibility for their child’s participation
  • children need to get in the mood, so we suggest that you should arrive at the race and get registered in time, so that the children will have at least 10-15 minutes to get ready and find their friends
  • after the events of the little children the announcement of their results starts immediately, and then after the events of the big ones the announcement of their results takes place, and the gold, silver and bronze medals are handed over
Running should be safe – basic rules for “Clattering Feet”
Dear parents, please, DO NOT run at your pace but follow the little one, their speed must set your pace. In this way, falls, accidents and injuries can be avoided and it will be guaranteed that you will see a smile on your child’s face upon arrival at the finishing line and not tears.
