FAMILY FUN EVENT INFO

Yes -- for a fee. We will provide day care to the children of runners and conference attendees only (we need to know that parents are in the immediate vicinity of event central at the Park -- not off on a 160 mile motorcycle rally or 70 mile bike ride).

The Family Fun Event presumes that while either parent is riding a long-distance ride the remaining spouse/relative remains behind to walk, run or just have fun with the kids. We recommend that parents have a trusted, responsible family member or friend supervise their children on what will be a truly memorable Family Fun Day.

Who is allowed on the inflatables? Will there be supervision? 
Adults and kids are both welcome to the inflatables.  We also have a toddler fun tent with all sorts of toddler-friendly activities. Highly responsible and dedicated volunteers (2 per inflatable) will ensure your kids have fun and play safe.

Yes.  The Family Fun Festival is free; however, all participants must sign a waiver and receive a hand stamp to participate on the inflatables, climbing wall or run in the races.

Is there food provided, and can I bring my own food? 
Other than the free pancake breakfast from 6:00 am - 9:30 am, there will be no free food at the Family Fun Day Event. 4US food vendors will be present selling a variety of American fare at reasonable prices. Also, our bike routes pass local delis and restaurants and convenience stores so make sure to pack some cash. 

You are welcome to bring your own food.
