Kids Crit and fall fest FB Cove-2

Walmart OZ KIDS™ Crit and Fall Fest is Back in Bentonville!

October 22, 2022

We are so excited to be back at the Bentonville Public Library with the Walmart OZ Kids™ Fat Tire Criterium Championship and Fall Fest! Race day will be full of so much fun, we can't wait to see you there!

What is a criterium? A criterium is a bike race where the riders ride laps on a closed course. In our case, the number of laps is determined by the age of the riders. We have race categories for kids 2-11.

Each racer gets a numbered bike plate with a timing chip...because we are LEGIT...and a totally rad medal. The top five in each category will stand on a podium and collect their prize!

Registration is open now. Registration for the race is $20. Registration for the festival is free.

But wait, there's more! We'll have food, crafts, discovery play, princess storytime, yoga, music - crazy fun will be had by all!

If your child needs a bike and you are financially unable to fulfill that need, Pedal It Forward can help. More information HERE.

Registration is required for festival attendees. 

Registration is also required for all race participants. Space for the race is limited.
