The North Star Children's Ramble

  • Corner of Mt. Vernon St. & Walnut St. 250 Walnut St Dedham, MA 02026

The North Star Children's Ramble is a one-of-a-kind literacy-themed sporting event for kids ages 4-12 and their families. There are age-specific races ranging from the 50 yard dash to 500 yard dash, and The Dedham Family Fun Run.

The North Star Childrens Ramble event also includes coloring activities for runners and non-runner audience participants. Like its "parent race," James Joyce Ramble, the North Star Ramble creatively mixes sports and the arts together by tying into Dedham author Peter H. Reynolds’ book, The North Star.
