2019 Kokopelli Kids Event Details: We have updated and made some changes to the Kokopelli Kids Trail Running Series! Please read about our enhancements and changes:
We are moving the event location to Pinon Valley Park and combining the Kokopelli Kids Trail Series with the adult Blue Moon Trail Running Series so that parents and all family members will have an opportunity to race! (no longer at Bear Creek Park)
We started theThe Kokopelli Kids Trail Running Series 13 years ago and it is designed to introduce children pre-school through 8th grade to the sport of trail running in a fun, challenging and rewarding environment. Kids will learn how to run on the trails, they will learn to pace themselves and they will learn that running can be fun and rewarding. Running is no longer a form of punishment!
Participants who register for the Series receive a t- shirt, finishers ribbon, refreshments and Marco's Pizza! Each event will be timed and race results will be posted on the event website www.KokopelliKids.com.
Participants who run the Series and finish in the top 3 in their age group (8 & younger, 9 &10,11&12, 13 & 14) will receive custom trophies. Participants must run all three races to be eligible for these trophies.
