The Trains Planes and Automobile Kid Race Series was created by Cathy Weise in 2018. This series is designed to keep kids moving throughout the spring and summer. Whether it is their first time running and staying active or setting race timing goals and trying to PR. This was designed for kids to feel included, healthy, empowered and obtain a healthy goal. Participants also get the opportunity to run in some pretty unique locations in Fredericksburg, historic downtown, an airport run way and an oval race track. Fredericksburg is expanding and has a lot to offer, so why not run in some really cool places.
It starts with the Great Train Race in May, Cleared for Take Off in June at Shannon Airport and Runners Start Your Engines in July at Dominion Raceway.
Children can pick the distance they would like to do for all three races, 1 mile, ½ mile and ¼ mile. The 1 mile event is the only one timed. Once the kids complete all three races, finishing at Dominion Raceway , they will receive a participation TPA Kids race series medal. Since the one-mile distance is timed, participants for the series are put in the running for the top five fasted boys and girls will receive trophies.
