Jogging strollers are welcome!

Post-Race Events:

  • Awards and door prizes
  • Previous years’ race t-shirts available for a donation—because you can never have too many Pete the Cat t-shirts!
  • Reuse-a-Shoe: Drop off your old running shoes to be recycled
  • There will be a “Thank you James Dean!” table where participants are encouraged to write a note to James thanking him for his generosity over the years.

Awards: *All* of our participants are winners, but prizes will be awarded to top male and female finishers in the overall and masters categories; the 1st and 2nd place male and female age group winners in the 5k (10-year age divisions); top 5K runner with jogging stroller; and top three male and female finishers of the mile.  All Tot Trot participants receive a Pete the Cat “medal”!
