It was  non-competitive fun run, designed just for children ages 3 – 10.
According to the organisers It is a great way to introduce kids to the basics of running and enjoy the excitement of a race – including the start and finish line production, a massive cheering section, a trip through runner’s service and the occasional celebrity siting! The princess assisted those kids who were unable to cover the distance because of their age.
The Princess taught the kid runners warm-up excercise when they reported at the start-line. The races were conducted in different group age-wise and group-wise. At the finish-line the Princess cheered the runners and presented them finisher's medal.
The kids parents were seen taking photos/videos of their children and cheering them throughout the designed route. All participants  received a goodie bag, a participant bib with the number 1, and a finisher’s medal .
Besides the Rookie Run, their were various interesting activites, like face painting, Net Generation tennis clinic, bouncy house, dances, cultural activities, food etc.
A large number of Indian-American kids enthusiastically took part in the kids activities.
