3rd Annual Beat the Street for Little Feet!

Feet of all sizes are welcome! Join Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool families for a Saturday morning of running and fun on October 31, 2009 at 9AM in Candler Park. The race will include not only a 5K with special jog stroller division, but also a 1-mile race for younger participants, and a “fun run” for our community’s youngest runners. Stick around for the FREE post-race Children's Festival with live children’s music, a costume contest, face painting, food, and loads of festivities for the kids. And for all you “Pete the Cat” fans, award-winning local artist James Dean has created another one-of-a-kind race T-shirt for the event. This year, Pete and kittens are in costume! To check out the new T-shirt design and to register for the race, visit our website, www.oakhurstcoop.com. You also can register at www.active.com or at the Big Peach Running Company in downtown Decatur.

Not a runner, but love Pete the Cat? Sign up to be a ghost runner and still get your t-shirt. Check us out at: www.oakhurstcoop.com for more information.
