There is a run, jog, walk, and stroller push for everyone in the family at the 4th Annual Tiny Smiles’ “tiny” Half Marathon, 10K, 5K Run/Walk, Kids Fun Run, and Health Expo, on Saturday, February 6, 8:00 a.m., at the Galt Fairgrounds. This exciting event will benefit U.C. Davis Children’s Hospital, Children’s Heart Foundation and tinySmiles. This event is designed to create awareness of Congenital Heart Defect and raise money for the incredible care and support babies and their families need.
See the great American little town of Galt on this flat and fast course. The Half Marathon loop will take you through historical Galt, new developments, older and newer neighborhoods and past each of our High Schools. The 5K and 10K courses will be a fast out-and-back loop (double loop for the 10K). There are multiple aid stations and bathrooms along the way. Walkers and running strollers are also encouraged to join in. The spectator-friendly finish area is located at the Galt Fairgrounds, so your family and friends can cheer you on and hear your name as you cruise across the finish line. The Fairgrounds is located at Civic Drive and Chabolla Avenue. Free parking all around the start / finish area.
Entry fee is $45.00 for the 5K Run/Walk and $70.00 for the half marathon. Entry fee includes custom tech shirt, (finishers medal for the half marathon), goodie bag, race gels, sports drink, post race food, and entertainment. After the race join us from some food and drinks, and walk though the Health Expo near the start/finish site. And, there will be plenty of fun stuff for the kids.
Children can sign up for the Kids Fun Run (The Tiny Tiny Half) (1.31 mile) on the day of the race. The first 150 to sign up will get a T-shirt and goodie bag, with the $10.00 entry fee.
