TRENCH KIDS was designed to let young children compete in a fun, family friendly, competitive atmosphere. Children of all sizes and skill levels are encouraged to participate. In an effort to create a culture of good sportsmanship with these young runners, parents and other spectators are asked to follow the guidelines below to ensure the race remains friendly and support ALL PARTICIPANTS.
1.Healthy competition means keeping the race fun. Kids would rather have fun than just focus on winning.
2.Healthy competition means doing your best and learning that sometimes doing your best puts you on the podium, and sometimes it doesn’t. That’s OK.
3.Healthy competition means being supportive of others. Encourage interaction! It’s OK to make friends with other competitors and even congratulate the winner. No one likes a sore loser.
4.Give positive, supportive encouragement only. (DO NOT use profanity and please avoid negative comments and verbal harassment.)
5.Respect ALL participants, their parents, race officials, and volunteers. No one is perfect, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t trying our best.
6.Remember, these are children. The race is for the kids — not for adults and their personal goals.
At Trench Kids, we love inspiring kids to stay active.
Because we are dealing with impressionable youth, any inappropriate or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Offenders will be asked to leave the event.
