The Romp n’ Roll Short Pump Express Run

What is the Express Run? A 400 meter non-timed Fun Run for those 5 & Under kids who just aren't ready for the Big Kahuna (Mile). It starts near where the mile events start, and use the same finish line as the mile.

When does it start? At approximately 10:45 AM - We will send off waves of 50 children each wave in 2-5 min increments. Our number one goal is safety! All children will be assigned a wave. Oh....and if you miss your wave? Don't worry! You can always go in the next wave.

Who can run the Express Run? Any child age 5 & Under, AND who can walk for a minimum of 400 meters. Just a reminder for parents, if your child is still just learning to walk (let alone run) we do not advise them to participate.

What do you get when you run this event? A chance to feel like a BIG kid, the coveted Short Pump Race medal when you finish (like the BIG kids), post-race food, and of course a special Express Run T-shirt that you can proudly show your Grandma and Grandpa that you ran a race!
