2013 Princess Run and Little Dude Dash Date/Location Announced

“April 14th – 4th Annual Festival to be Magical by The River”

runhers, a women’s health and lifestyle organization headquartered in OKC, announces that the 4th Annual Princess Run Festival and Little Dude Dash will take place on April 14th from 1pm – 5pm in and around the OKC Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River.

The nationally renowned OKC Boathouse District will again be transformed into a magical village on April 14th for the children’s festival. The Princess Run is a frolicking, whimsical 1.2 mile run/walk/stroll event designed to delight girls 12 and under while encouraging a healthy and happy lifestyle. The Little Dude Dash is a “wicked cool” 1.2 mile run/walk for boys. Part of the proceeds will benefit The Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation.

The festival begins at 1:00pm as the festival opens on the OKC Boathouse District grounds. All of the venues will be open for tours and youth activities sponsored by OKC RIVERSPORT. The Princess Run will start at 2:00pm and the Little Dude Dash will start at 3:15. The 1.2 mile runs will be along the Oklahoma River trails. A full schedule of attractions and activities, along with course map and village layout will be released on March 25th.

“The Princess Run and Little Dude Dash Festival is designed to celebrate and delight in our youth. On this day, kids are our only focus (parents can run w/kids or act like kids), our creativity and imagination allows us to be as playful as they are with this festival,” says runhers special projects director Sheila Kidder. “We want the event to entertain, engage and celebrate our amazing kids while offering support and awareness for all the great things that are happening on the Oklahoma River here in OKC.”

There is an entry fee to participate in the Princess Run and Little Dude Dash event. Registration for the event is now open. The Princess Run and Little Dude Dash participant level will be capped and has sold out the prior three years. The festival is a free and open event. See
