Your Lil’ Squatches will LOVE their custom-graphic  nylon backpack full of goodies from our event sponsors!

Is there merchandise available?

Event merchandise will be available at the event however for guaranteed selection, purchase your new Lil’ Squatches gear during on-line registration!

Who will benefit from Lil’ Squatches?

It brings Bigfoot Community Events great pride to give 100% of Registration to local schools in Cowlitz County! During your on-line registration process, you’ll select a school for which you’d like to see receive your race participation proceeds! If you don’t see your school listed, please choose a school you’d like to support! When the dust has settled and the mud’s been washed off, BCE will tally all proceeds and present each school with their Lil’ Squatches Kids Fun Run race proceeds!! How cool is it to help your favorite local school?!

Will all participants run together?

No. The Lil’ Squatches will run in waves according to grade level* to ensure their safety. This year we have altered our grade level wave times.  For your convenience you may register your student(s) for a morning wave time or an afternoon wave time, however, your student(s) may not run in both waves for their grade level.

For example, Kindergarteners from all participating schools run at either the 9am wave or the 12:00pm wave, all 1st graders run at 9:30am or 12:30pm wave and so on. Your speedy Lil’ Squatches will be released in a staggered start to avoid Sasquatch Stampede at the start line. This event is not timed, all racers run individually and all are Winners! There are no teams, just great kids running within their grade level.

*The afternoon session will combine 5th and 6th grade students at the 3pm wave.  There will be no 3:30pm wave for 6th graders only.

Can I run with my child?

Sorry, this one’s for the kids only! Spectators are welcome however, for everyone’s safety, please stay off the race course. There will be plenty of race officials stationed along the course to make sure all are safe and sound.

My kids run at different wave times, what’s there to do in the meantime?

Not only will your Lil’ Squatches have a blast on their race course, we have lots of action planned for them in the party field: food, entertainment and more! Let your kiddos race and then let them party!!

Is there a on-site parking?

Because everyone in Cowlitz County wants to be at this event, parking is limited. Please plan to carpool. Parking $5 at North County Park.

If our plans change and my child can’t participate, will I be refunded?

Registration is non-refundable. If one or all of your registered racers are unable to participate, their registration will be considered a charitable donation to the school for which was chosen during registration.

IMPORTANT!!  All race participants must have a signed waiver and release form!
