This race is being presented by the Fayette County School Nutrition Association .  FCSNA is a non-profit organization that aides local school nutrition employees and public school students. FCSNA provides annual student scholarships, employee scholarship, and multiple recognition awards. We offer continuing education for our members to develop their career skill sets while offering a localized sense of community. Our members and fellow child nutrition professionals have maintained their dedication throughout the pandemic. We have worked tirelessly to provide meals for adolescents and will continue to do so throughout 2021. If it wasn't known before 2020, it is now clear that some heroes do indeed, wear aprons instead of capes.   100% of proceeds and donations from our race will bolster our student & employee scholarship program.

SOCIAL TEAMS    Expand your race experience and SAVE $3.00 on your registration by starting or joining a social team when you register.  Teams of 5 or more members enable team pricing which will save each member of the team $3.00.  The first 4 members of the team will have their credit/debit card credited $3.00 when the 5th person joins the team.  We'll also have a prize for the largest team.  Team members can participate in either the 5K Run/Walk, Kids Dash or Virtual.

PACKET PICKUP   We will announce our packet pickup plans later this summer.  We anticipate holding a packet pickup on Friday, September 17th at a location and times TBA.  We'll also have race morning packet pickup at Coldstream Park from 7:15-8:15am.

BEST DRESSED LUNCH LADY    Channel your favorite lunch lady from the past. Circa 1970’s. We’ll have a fun prize for the best dressed “lady”.
