Nationwide Children’s Hospital – Toledo Kids Run

Half Mile, Quarter Mile & 1 Mile Distances • Ages 2 to 12

Saturday, April 27, 2024


The first race of the day will be the 1 mile run beginning at 11:00am. Immediately following the start of the 1 mile run we will line up the 1/2 mile run. This run will start once the last 1 mile run participant crosses the Library footbridge.

The 1/4 mile toddler run will begin at approximately 11:15am, or once everyone has cleared the course from the first two runs.

All kid’s races finish in the Glass Bowl stadium. Parents will enter the Northeast gate to the field and stay on the outside of the barricades to take photos, video and receive kids after they finish — no-one is allowed inside the finish chute except staff and runners (parents running course with kids allowed to finish with kids). Kids will exit the finish chute onto the field near the Northeast corner of the stadium where you entered.


Our annual run for kids age 2 to 12 is back and better than ever thanks to title sponsor, Nationwide Children's Hospital - Toledo. Fun, family-friendly courses start on Stadium Dr., run through campus and have a big finish on the field of the Glass Bowl Stadium all of the kids love.
