Huntsville Hospital Autumn Chase Fun Run

Fun Run FAQs

Is there a registration fee?

There is no registration fee, but donations to Huntsville Hospital Foundation are appreciated and will benefit pediatric oncology at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children.

Who can run in the race?

Any child, preschool through 8th grade, may run and receive a T-shirt. Parents may run with smaller children, but adults do not receive T-shirts.

If my child misses his scheduled race, can he run with another group?

Yes. A child can run in another category if he misses his group or if he feels more comfortable running with a friend or sibling. But a child can only win or place when he runs with his own grade category. He will receive a T-shirt and participation ribbon, but he will not qualify for a medal or placement ribbon.

Parking Changes

Due to construction, the parking for the Fun Run this year is at the south parking lots of Joe Davis Stadium (3030 S. Memorial Parkway). Parking is accessible from S. Memorial Parkway and Leeman Ferry Road. See map for further instructions. Allow ample travel time.

Concessions

Purchase hot dogs, hamburgers and more at Buffalo Rock concessions. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to benefit pediatric oncology at Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children.

Fair Play

To officially place in any race a child must cross the finish line alone. You may run with your child, but you cannot assist in a placement. Make sure your child understands the race course. Each child must begin at the starting line to qualify for a placement ribbon or T-shirt.

Who receives a T-shirt?

Each child who finishes the race will receive a T-shirt and a participation ribbon. There will only be one T-shirt per child regardless of the number of times the child runs. Sizes will consist of youth x-small, youth small, youth medium, youth large, adult small, adult medium and adult large, and will be distributed on a first-come first-serve basis.

Lost Child/Parent

In the event a child and parent cannot locate each other after the race, please go to Lost & Found near the award stage. You have the option of writing your cell phone number on your child's running bib. The staff will call you if your child comes to the lost and found station.

Publicity

Please note that the Fun Run is a public event which may attract media attention. Huntsville Hospital also takes photographs that may be used for marketing, advertising and social media purposes. By participating in this event, you grant the right to use you or your child's image(s) for such purposes.
