Push Kart Kinetic Dash (4th grade and up)
This event is for kids who want to Build!
Who can race?
You need to be in 4th to 8th grade to participate in the Dash. Each team needs, one Pilot, one Pusher, one Offishul Grownup, and helpers.
What is a Junior Kinetic Push Kart?
It’s like a soap box racer, but instead of going downhill, you'll have a teammate pushing you around the course. Your Push Kart needs a seat, a place for the Pusher to hold onto, steering, and brakes, but no drive system. It isn't Kinetic without Art, so your Kart should also look cool.
Prizes will be given for Art, Speed, Engineering, and more.
Rutabaga Rally (Kindergarten and up)
This event is for kids who want to decorate themselves and their bikes, trikes, scooters, and skates!
Who can race?
Racers need to be in Kindergarten or older to be in the Rally. Each team also needs one Offishul Grownup.
What do we do?
First, make art.
Get a team together and decide on a theme.
Decorate your bikes, skateboards, skates, scooters, or other kid powered vehicles.
Make costumes to match your team art theme.
Don’t forget the safety gear!
No riders or rollers without a helmet and pads.
Then learn a "team song"... any song.
Bring your team to registration on Mother's Day, and navigate the Rutabaga Rally Obstacle Course as a team.
Rutababy Buggy Bouncers
Even the littlest Kinetic Nuts can strut their stuff. Kids age -9 months to pre-school &... everybody else.
Whether you cruise in your Kozy Koupe, sit in a stroller, or just ride around in your Mom’s belly: Art up that ride, cozy into some costumes, and be a part of the Big Kick-Off Parade.
