What is the Little Jelly Tot Dash?

This is a short (100 yard or less), fun event for kids aged 6 and under.  We make a big deal of it and try to make the kids feel like they are really part of the event.  They start a short distance away from the finish line and run under the big finish line.  Moms and dads can stand at the finish line and take photos.  Our own photographer will also be on hand to take pictures of "their moment."

Kids get a t-shirt, candy and a small surprise kid toy.
