Description

This race is perfect for seasoned racers, walkers and those who've never run or even walked 3.1 miles. Grab your strollers and favorite pets on a leash -- they're welcome, too! Sarah Plake, KSHB-TV 41 news reporter, will emcee the event. Meet student-athletes Earl Bostick Jr., Jalon Daniels, Kenny Logan Jr., Devin Neal and Ky Thomas, too! They'll be on hand to help lead warm-ups, sign autographs and take photos with participants, award the medals, and "race" our littlest attendees in a free fun run! We'll also have bounce houses and other free kids' activities on site.

Virtual participants: You can even track your mileage over the week to total a 5K. (How many trips from the couch to the fridge would you need?) 

All participants receive a race T-shirt. Medals will be awarded for the top in-person male and female overall and master’s (40+) finishers, and the top 3 male and female finishers in these age groups: 10 & under, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+. Virtual participants can submit their race photos to be recognized in a variety of creative categories. More details to come.

Teams of four or more people can register to receive a $5 discount per person for either the in-person or virtual event. Teams can be a mix of in-person and virtual participants. The largest youth team (18 and under) will win free meals from Hawaiian Bros!
