There are 2 factors that we refused to negotiate, which creates the current price point for RaceKids: SAFETY & CONVENIENCE.
RaceKids ensures each day camp employee is fully certified. Each employee must also pass a background check, and each employee must have experience. RaceKids is located in a conference room of a premium Headquarter Hotel. This ensures your child is in a safe facility, with all the amenities required for a safe day camp experience.
Your child’s safety is our number one concern.
Being located in a Headquarter Hotel means you’re almost always under a mile from the start line, and if you’re staying at that hotel, your child doesn’t even need to go outside in order to get to us. With this convenience comes the limitation of what we can offer for food and snacks. For safety reasons, the HQ Hotel will only allow RaceKids to serve food from their menu, meaning both breakfast and continental snack bar (and lunch as well if your child is in the full marathon camp) are served at a quality and price in which they operate as a whole.
It is impossible to staff RaceKids based on estimated finish time. Weather and injuries and other factors play a huge role in when you’ll be able to return to pick up your child. For this reason, we created a full morning experience for your child. They have an action packed morning planned with many activities. If you’re done the race and our camp is still running, please feel free to take time to relax, shower, eat, and enjoy the rest of your morning until pickup time.
“We are committed to providing a safe, convenient, and fun day for your child(ren). We have taken every precaution, and eliminated every roadblock so you can have a smooth transition on race morning and fully enjoy your run.”
