FCNI’s 5th Annual Miracle Miles for Kids 10K Walk/Run will take place on Saturday May 10th, 2008. Please check the Miracle Miles for kids website to verify time, date and location.

The 10K (6.2 miles) race course runs along the water’s edge from Morro Rock to the Cayucos Pier, one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in California. When participants cross the finish line, they will be treated to a post-race party with live music by Rhodes, a BBQ lunch, a vendor fair, children’s activities and an award ceremony. In addition, every walker/runner will receive a souvenir bag and a Miracle Miles commemorative t-shirt! The event truly has something for everyone—from the serious athlete to moms and dads looking for something the whole family can enjoy. The race begins at 8:30 am, with the post-race celebration running from 9:00--12:30 pm. All are welcome to attend one or both portions of this exciting event.

Course:
Enjoy but be Careful!
Miracle Miles for Kids is run on a scenic 6.2 mile stretch of flat beach. The tide is low and the sand compact with kilometer and mile markers to help measure progress. Depending on the season’s rainfall, the course may include several water crossing areas at which bridges are provided for those who wish to keep their feet dry. If participants become dehydrated, sustain an injury or just need a break, they can take advantage of the mid-course Water/First Aid Station.

Please be mindful that there is a rocky point to cross 2.5 miles into the course. Follow the cones for the safest and quickest route. There will be spotters available to help guide participants through this brief piece of the course.

The Family Care Network, Inc. is partnering with the State of California in an effort to preserve the beauty of our beaches and protect the Snowy Plover Bird. This endangered bird makes its home on the Central Coast beaches. To help in this effort, please adhere to the following requirements while participating in this event:

1. Please do not bring dogs or kites to the event as they are not allowed on State Park beaches.
2. Please stay clear of the soft sand area and sand dunes located on the right side of the course as this is where Snow Plovers make their home.
3. Please do not leave trash, water bottles, etc. on the beach at any time.

For more information visit the Miracle Miles for kids website.
