The Boise event of the Push 5K takes place at Ann Morrison Park on Saturday, October 19, with the first wave of runners starting at 10 a.m. Race entry is valid for one participant and a stroller, although participants aren't required to run with a stroller. See the FAQs page for more information. Portions of the race's proceeds benefit the Treasure Valley YMCA and Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind.
Mothers always stand behind their children. Push 5K races run with that notion, only there isn't much standing involved. The co-ed events send moms—and dads, aunts, uncles, and grandparents—around scenic routes just over three miles in length, all while pushing pint-sized racers in strollers. Along the courses, spectators and professional photographers snap pictures, and multiple water stations provide chances for kids to hop out and fill their water cannons.
