What's up with the Kids Challenge?

Several people have asked about the Kids Challenge, which will encourage younger children to run the shorter courses with their parents in an age-appropriate, non-competitive way. @bethany-schiller and her colleagues at the Ithaca Youth Bureau are still working on the details surrounding the Kids Challenge, but the current thinking is that it will be a mileage-based program where kids will try to complete a certain number of miles within a time frame, much like the IYB’s previous Marathon Miles program.

Things like registration, cost, kid swag, and awards are all still being worked out, but they’ll be handled separately from the overall FLRC Challenge, so adults can register for the FLRC Challenge now and sign their kids up for the Kids Challenge at some point in the future.
