Join us on Saturday, February 20th in Kingsland, GA for the Heart for the Children 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run.  This event will be professionally chip timed by Second Wind Race Timing

Start Format: 9:00 a.m.  5K runners will be self seeded and begin from  the START/FINISH ARCH. Over All awards will be based off of Gun Time.  We ask only the ELITE RUNNERS going for the win, to toe off first at the start line.  To allow for social distancing, all age group awards will be based off chip time.  There is no need to stand crowded at the start line.  Runners can maintain social distancing while waiting in our start area and start in a time trail format.  If you are not comfortable with this start format, late starts will be allowed until 9:15 a.m.   The same process will be used for the youth 1 mile race at 8:30 a.m.

We ask that all runners wear a face mask during packet pickup / check in, and that you practice social distancing at all times during the event.  Runners do not need to wear masks while racing.
