Beneficiary - kidsPACK

There are disadvantaged children all around us that go hungry every day. We just don’t often hear about them. Are we completely unaware of the crisis? While subsidized school breakfast and lunch programs are in place during school hours, what happens at mealtime for these very same children evenings, weekends and over the summer months? kidsPACK strives to bridge that gap by simply taking action.

A portion of each race registration will be donated to kidsPack, and participates are encouraged donate additional food items on race day.

Restrictions - Safety is our first priority!

For everyone’s safety – NO strollers, bicycles, roller skates, in-line skates, and dogs will be allowed on the course.  The use of headphones is discouraged.

Walker Friendly Events
Our mission is to promote running, walking, and general fitness in group settings. Walkers are encouraged to participate in all races.

Children Under 12 (runners OR walkers)
For their safety, children under 12 are strongly discouraged from lining up with the elite runners at the start line.

Managing Your Registration

To provide the safest races of the highest integrity, the Lakeland Runners Club offers race number transfers.

There are no refunds for this race. If you can't make the race, please initiate a registration transfer instead of just giving your bib to someone else. Giving someone a bib registered in your name creates inaccurate race results and can prevent registered and deserving individuals from being properly recognized in their age group, and creates a risk in the case of emergency when EMS is not able to identify the person by their race number.

You may transfer your registration to another runner (officially give it to someone else) under Manage Your Registration within a specific date range. The LRC is not responsible for identifying individuals for the exchange.

It's fun to have friends or family join you in an event - please remember everyone needs to Pay to Play.  Participants without bibs are called bandits and in case of an emergency, unregistered runners may not be able to be identified. Bandits take resources designated for those who have trained, paid the entry fee, and earned the right to participate:i.e. parking spaces, port-o-johns, space on the course, medals and finish line amenities. Everyone around you at a race should have a race number (bib).
