PEPSI KIDS' GRAND PRIX

What is the Pepsi Kids’ Grand Prix?

The Pepsi Kids’ Grand Prix Grand Prix is a race series that consists of seven road race events.  Youth who complete five of the seven series events will be considered a “Grand Slammer” and awarded a personalized plaque and series shirt shortly after the last race of the series.  The Pepsi Kids’ Grand Prix was created to promote running in the youth of Lincoln and surrounding communities.
