Kid-venture Course

After the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s annual 5k Road Race this same morning, kids ages 1-12 looking for a shorter (and sillier) challenge will have their chance to step up to the starting line of our Kid-venture Course. This quirky course will be filled with silly challenges and provide a fun time for all. New this year, we’re inviting kids to dress up in a “Think Spring” theme: wear bright colors, add some fairy or butterfly wings, throw on some antennae or animal ears – use your imaginations! And after all age groups have had a chance to conquer the course, we’ll invite them back to take the MEGA CHALLENGE, which is a race around the park and then back through the course! All Kid-venture participants receive a ribbon and a t-shirt (while supplies last) and can join in the many activities taking place at this yearly fundraising event held outside, rain or shine in Henry Law Park.

Kid-venture Course fee: $8 in advance, $10 day of race.

Families are welcome to enjoy free refreshments and other activities in Henry Law Park before and after the Kid-venture Course.
