The 23rd annual Junior Carlsbad will be taking place on Saturday March 31, 2012.
The Junior Carlsbad is an annual race held for children under the age of twelve. Last year, Running USA announced the event as the “Youth Event of the Year.”
This year’s event includes eleven different race courses, which have been specifically designed for each age and fitness group. What makes this event different from others? The race is not focused on how fast participants cross the finish line but rather about having fun! At Junior Carlsbad, every child is a winner.
Participants will be awarded a medal for finishing the race and receive a goodie bag, which includes a race t-shirt and a free admission to the SEA LIFE Aquarium. The top three boy and girl runners will be awarded an additional prize.
The event makes for a great family outing and helps promote physical activity. If you and your family are visiting the Carlsbad area during this event, come out and participate! Proceeds from the race will benefit the Carlsbad Educational Foundation.
