We start and finish at the hall and each session has a different format. In December, the juniors run their own version of the adults’ Turkey Trot race The juniors’ race is called the Chicken Run. Juniors also have their own awards ceremony in March which often takes the shape of a fun activity such as an afternoon at Urban Jump.
