Introducing the ORRC Kids Passport Program!
ORRC is excited about starting a new kids program. To encourage kids to get out and participate with their parents at ORRC events, we are starting a “Kids Passport” program. At any event that includes a free kids run (i.e. 400 meter dash, or ½ mile) kids who participate will receive a “Passport” and a sticker for that event to put in the passport. Any kid who participates in three or more events will receive a prize (such as a $5 gift card to Jamba Juice). Any kid who completes all of the free kids events in one year will receive a set of dog tags that list those events.
The program is free to enter and participate in. Sign up NOW! ORRC will attempt to keep a list of kids who participate in each event, but may also request parents assistance, since many times in these events kids are not required to register. If a child loses a passport it can be replaced as needed.
The first kids event will be the Champoeg 10K/30 in March, which will include a kids ½-mile run. The ORRC events that will have free kids runs in 2013 are as follows:
Champoeg 10K/30K with ½-Mile kids run

Summer Solstice 5K with 400-Meter kids run
