FIRST 5 Kids Fun Run
Please note, children must be accompanied by a guardian at all times. This is not a drop off area.
FIRST 5 Santa Clara County works to ensure that children in our community are happy, healthy and ready to succeed in school. They are proud to sponsor this year’s Kids Fun Run as part of their ongoing efforts to prevent early childhood obesity. Visit FIRST 5’s Facebook page for more tips and resources on how to keep kids healthy and active.
The FIRST 5 Kids Fun Run consists of three courses: children ages 2-3 run 75 yards, children ages 4-5 run a quarter mile, and children ages 6-7 run a half of a mile. All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt, water bottle and Potter the Otter storybooks.

Lucile Packard Kids Fun Zone
Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital has been a proud sponsor of the Turkey Trot since it was first held in 2004.
Their commitment brings programs and services to those in our community who need them the most – from caring for uninsured or underinsured kids and homeless teens to helping re-establish nurse positions in local schools.
The Lucile Packard Kids Fun Zone will have fun and health oriented activities for kids.
You can register your child at the 5K/10K starting bib location at Santa Clara and Market Street anytime before 8:30 am or in the Lucile Packard Kids Fun Zone after 9:00 am. On race day, shirts will only be available for pick up in the Kids Fun Zone after 9:00 am.
No, each child must register and have a Kids Fun Run bib to participate in the Kids Fun Run. However, the Kids Fun Zone is open to everyone.
You must pick up your bib at one of our packet pick ups. Packet pick-up will be at Sports Basement (1177 Kern Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085 (408)732-0300) on November 21-26 from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm.
