Lady Tutu 5K & Little Princess Dash
This is a social and fitness event dedicated to celebrating girls and women. It will be held in Cleveland on June 6 and in Toledo Aug. 26.
The Little Princess Dash is between 100 and 200 yards. There will be two heats: the first heat is for girls ages 4 and younger. The second heat is for girls ages 5-8. Parents are allowed to run or walk with their little ones. Each participant receives a t-shirt, tiara, and a ribbon at the finish.
The Tutu 5k will begin after the Little Princess Dash. The course will be 3.1 miles and it normal takes walkers about an hour to finish the course. If you have a little princess running in the dash they are allowed to run/walk with you in the Tutu 5k. If you have a great tutu this is the perfect event to wear it! Come out and join Make-A-Wish in this memorable event.
