Inspired by Emma’s love for running.

Emma loved to run, however she was often frustrated that there were not more “kids runs” available. So, in her honor, we’ve established races of varying challenges, for all participants — adults and children alike.

As Emma would want, all participants are welcome.

Whatever your participation, we encourage everyone to come out and join us for face painting, kids yoga and stretching, refreshments and good cheer, for what promises to be a joyous, memorable event! 

When: May 7th, 2023
Where: Memorial Beach, Sharon, MA.
Time: 9:30 AM kid runs /10:10 AM main event
Directions:  1 Beach St., Sharon, MA
