2 Mile - Youth Run

A perfect intro to running!



The two-mile youth race is designed for the younger generation who wish to race less than the longer five miles. This is a great opportunity to introduce children to running and to promote physical fitness to our youth.

The parents can join in, but don't cross the finish line with the racer. Giant ribbons will be given for various age divisions. All registered children are eligible for the drawings.

Start time:

  • 8:30 AM

Age divisions:

  • 5 & under

  • 6-7

  • 8-9

  • 10-11

  • 12-13

  • 14-15

  • 16-18

Medals will be given to all Youth finishers. See Event Overview for more information.


Note: In fairness to all competitors, runners in the youth race must complete the course on foot. Registered competitors in strollers, backpacks, or carried will not be eligible for age group awards. Parents or guardians are encouraged to escort and encourage very young runners.

In addition to entry into the Mount Shasta 4th of July Walk / Run, all registered participants will receive a t-shirt and will automatically be entered into all prize drawings.



The 2-Mile Youth Course has been accurately measured. A pdf version of the course map is available here. The map below is accurate, but may not reflect actual course distance.
