The Kid’s Race is a relatively flat, fast and furious .3 mile course beginning at the Storm King Firehouse on Hudson Street in the center of quaint and historic Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson. The course is an out-and-back route and features a thrilling and dizzying hairpin turn at the midway point whereupon the runners reverse direction and return to the start/finish line. Parents are advised to keep back from the course to avoid flying elbows and airborne road debris.
The Kid’s Racecourse has been certified by veteran Cornwall Lion – and very nearly the oldest Cornwall Lion in existence [and capitivity] – Chick Jergens – who will place the race pylons on the course his very own self. The Kids’ Fun Run, as you might imagine is a huge hit – so bring your camera for the exciting photo-finish! The road will be closed for this event.
