CONWAY - Believe you have the fastest crawling baby along the Grand Strand? Have a shot at letting the little one win a prize for all that bundled up energy.

The 2012 Great Baby Race, presented by VisitMyrtleBeach.com, is set for halftime of the Clemson versus Coastal Carolina basketball game beginning at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19.

We'll set out to see who is the fastest on their hands and knees, and three great prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in the event. First place will receive 75 packages of diapers while second and third place winners will both receive a $75 cash prize. The baby racing distance will be about 15 yards in length near center court in front of the cheering crowd.

If your baby is between 9-18 months old and still a crawler, he or she is a prime candidate for the 2012 Great Baby Race.

To become a contestant, a baby's parent will need to submit a name, age and birthdate, photo and brief sentence or two as to why the toddler could just be the fastest one along the Grand Strand. Entries should be emailed to kolivett@coastal.edu by no later than Monday, Dec. 17.  

Contestants will be contacted and provided specific details after selection is made.

The race is on now for parents to get their baby entered in 2012 The Great Baby Race presented by VisitMyrtleBeach.com.  Ready, set, go!
