Strollers are optional, having fun is not.

RUNNING IS ABOUT COMMUNITY. 

Who better to build our community around than our families.  Grab a stroller and bring your stroller-sized child, grandchild, stuffie, or fur baby to this walk/run that celebrates the marvel of the stroller.  (Let's be honest, if you put a butternut squash wearing people clothes in your stroller, we wouldn't say anything.)  FOR CHILDREN'S SAFETY, UMBRELLA STROLLERS WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED ON THE WALK.

You probably don't know William Kent, the English architect born in 1685, but you should.  Without Kent, parents everywhere would be stuck on the treadmill instead of enjoying outdoor runs.  Maybe since we are honoring Kent, we should also thank the Duke of Devonshire.  He encouraged Kent to invent the stroller in 1733.  Thanks, you guys.  Because of you, we will be...

Running 'til the wheels fall off.
