New Date: October 3, 2020
On behalf of the board of Run 4 The Kids Inc, the Woods Creek Run 4 The Kids benefit race that was originally scheduled for May 9 will be postponed until a date to be determined this fall. We hope that by the fall, our community, country, and the world will be on the other side of this pandemic and that we will be able to enjoy running together, giving together, and celebrating together then.
Unfortunately, this world-wide pandemic has not only affected our ability to hold the benefit race, it has also resulted in postponing the therapies that Riven and Alyssa were scheduled to undergo. This is devastating for the families, as this is a lost window of time where improvements could have been made in motor and speech skills.
We are so grateful for all of those who had expressed interest in participating, volunteering, and sponsoring our event.We are grateful for those of you who have already signed up to participate in the race. Your entry will be transferred to the fall event, unless you would prefer a refund. Please let us know if that is the case.
We are grateful for those who have already signed up to volunteer. We will send out the new volunteer opportunities for our postponed event, once that becomes more solidified.
We are grateful for our current sponsors. We hope to proudly display your giving spirit. We will be in touch about our postponed event.
Please stay tuned for information about our fall event. We hope that you all stay healthy and happy.
PRE-REGISTRATION ENDS 48 HOURS BEFORE THE RACE, BUT LATE REGISTRATIONS ON THE MORNING OF THE RACE ARE WELCOME!
This is a benefit run to help fund intensive therapies needed to treat local children. These therapies are not covered by insurance. Your $45 run registration fee will make a difference in the treatment of these kids!
Runners, walkers, strollers, wheelchairs, and those of all abilities are encouraged to participate! The race course follows the Woods Creek Trail. Beginning and ending at the Historic Miller House Museum in Jordan's Point Park in Lexington Virginia, you will run up the hill to VMI's scenic view overlooking practice fields and barracks before getting a taste of Washington & Lee campus. You will glide by the beautiful and bubbling Wood's Creek before crossing into the Lime Kiln Park and turning around on the far side of Waddell Elementary. The finish will be a glorious down hill dash! As you wait on results, kick back and enjoy some great music from local artists as you enjoy food and a beverage and other festivities. This is a family friendly run and post-run event!
All participants will receive a drink, and tba food with their registration. Those who register by April 16th will receive a t-shirt and be entered into a drawing for a pair of free shoes from Lex Running Shop.
Food and beer will be sold to non-participants and participants who would like additional food and beer.
