There are 2 divisions to choose from; a short or long course. The short course is 1/4 mile or 440 yards and is called the Bridges Run. The long course is the 1 Mile Lake course around the north lake at Shadyside. Both courses are a paved trail that is mostly shaded. Parents and Volunteers are welcome to join their child. You can decide which course your child is ready for on race day. Generally 6 and up do the mile, although some 4 & 5 year olds can conquer the mile too. We have official clocks and timers and keep track of the children's times each week. The children receive a finishers ribbon with the color of their placement each week. They truly enjoy the recognition of their efforts regardless of their placement.
Each week a child attends they receive a chance to enter the raffle drawing for a free bike at the end of the season. We give away one bike for girls, and one bike for boys. These are presented at the end of the season celebration and cookout. Several of the area High School Cross Country members are graduates of the Roady's and are State Qualifiers in the IHSAA! We love seeing them run and volunteer with the young children to set a good example of giving back to our community. After all, children are our future.
