The Carolina For The Kids' race series, Kilometers For The Kids, is hybrid this year, meaning that there is an in-person and virtual option! Join us for an interactive weekend on October 28-30, 2022! All proceeds will directly benefit the patients and families of UNC Children's Hospital.
In-Person 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run - October 30
The in-person race will take place on October 30th at 7:30 am during UNC's Homecoming Weekend. You will have the choice of either running, jogging, or walking the one-mile Fun Run or 5K. The race will begin at the Old Well on UNC's campus and take place throughout the University's campus.
Old Well Location: East Cameron Ave., Chapel Hill, NC 27599
Virtual Events - 10K, 5K, 1 Miler, 10K Bike - October 28-30
The virtual race can be completed any time between October 28-30. Unlike previous years, there are four options. You can run a 10K, 5K, one-mile Fun Run, or bike a 10K! By participating in a virtual race, you get to run, jog, walk, or bike anywhere you would like. Also you get to time it yourself and submit your results online! Whether you live in Chapel Hill or several states away, you are welcome to participate!

By participating in any of the races, you have the choice of receiving a race packet! All packets will contain a KFTK shirt, various coupons for community businesses, snacks, and a For The Kids story.
