Posting Time Portal:  It is very important that you create your account as soon as possible - this will allow you to easily upload your child's 5K time on the day they complete the distance.  Here are the step by step instructions.  

How to Upload 5K Finish Times:
To post your child's results, you will need to create an account with PR Races – our host race management company.  There will be no fee to add your child. This will simply allow you to create a family account and then after your child completes the 5K, you will be able to upload their times.  While this is not required – uploading your child’s time will allow you to download a finishers certificate at the end.

Instructions on how to create an account and post results: 
1. Go to the PR Races home page and log in (email address and password) - you will create an account when you register your child. The 2021 Link will be posted mid-season. When it is time to post the 5K results click on MY ACCOUNT and scroll to find the race name
3. Click on the blue ACTION button and then submit Log Result 

4. You may create the account immediately.  It is highly recommended you take this step ahead of time so that there is no delay in posting your child’s time.

5. The ability to post 5K finish times will be open beginning Saturday, May 23rd – Sunday, May 31st.  So yes, you have all week to schedule your 5K and get it completed.

How do I make this a memorable event? 

1. Set a distinct time/day that you plan to have your child run the 5K.  That will help with the excitement. 
2. Plan the route out for the 5K with your child ahead of time.  You can use gmaps, www.gmap-pedometer.com or www.mapmyrun.com are just a few ideas.  Or you can consider using a track at one of the local high schools - 4 laps = 1mile - so if you complete 12 laps you have 3miles (and add 1/10th😊)! 
3. Wear your RunFit Kidz t-shirt on race day! 
4. Hand the medal at the end of the 5K when they cross the “finish line”! 
5. Let our RFK staff know when/where you will be running - we may be able to show up and cheer you on. 
6. Hook up with a RFK teammate and plan the event together 
7. Get the family involved.  During this time of social distancing - this is an easy way to keep a distance while maybe having extended family sit in the stands at the high school or underneath a tree while your little one does a lap.  Or even the neighbors may want to come out and cheer on the runners.   
8. Is your route mostly laps around a neighborhood?  Great – create a water stop! 
9. Make posters to hold up to cheer them on as they go by or grab some noisemakers from the dollar store. 
Start planning now!
