What does my Rugrat need during the race?

  • A special buddy or lovey that can comfort your child in your absence

FOR RACE DIRECTORS:
What is the cost to have Race Rugrats at my race?
There is no cost or commitment required to have Race Rugrats support your race.  We only require a small space to set up our Basecamp.

 Is Race Rugrats insured?
Of course!  Race Rugrats is insured for $1m/occurance & $2m/aggregate as a non-sports day camp.

How does Race Rugrats benefit my race?
Many families face child-care challenges that prevent them from registering for a race, especially at destination races where trusted babysitters aren't available.  By providing on-site child care, you eliminate this challenge and improve your registration numbers.  And the kids seeing their parent(s) cross the finish line encourages them to start training and racing - Race Rugrats develops life-long participants!
