In July of 2014, The National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Mi hosted the 3rd Annual Carter’s Kids Fun Run. Traverse City, Michigan is the hometown of Carter Oosterhouse and Cherry Festival is a premiere event that features a Festival of Races. The Carter’s Kids Fund Run has grown in just 3 short years to host almost 500 participants on the 1 mile course that winds through the downtown Traverse City area.
Each year, the National Cherry Festival takes places in the beautiful resort city of Traverse City, Michigan. The National Cherry Festival annually draws between 500,00-600,000 visitors. For the 3rd consecutive year, the National Cherry Festival has hosted the Carter’s Kids Fun Run at the National Cherry Festival.
This run is for children and families of all ages and this year, Carter’s Kids set a brand new record for participants, with over 550 runners!
The race course is one mile long and the course is lined with tens of thousands of patrons, all rooting for the participants. We are looking forward to reaching over 1,000 children running, very soon!
