Saturday, October 5, 2013
Andy Brown Park

Barefoot running is a huge trend, but many of the children we serve run barefoot every day because they do not have a choice. By running in this race, you will help provide shoes for children in need – and hope for their future.

$30 Pre-registration (9/20-10/3)
$35 Race Day Registration
$15 5K Kids Price (12 years or younger)
$15 1-Mile Fun Run

Event Timeline:
7:00 a.m. Race Day Registration and Packet Pick-Up
8:00 a.m. 1 Mile Fun Run Begins
8:30 a.m. 5K Race Begins
9:30 a.m. Awards

Prizes will be awarded to winners in each age bracket. All runners will receive a free cotton t-shirt and photo of a child who they will be supporting by running the race. You don't want to miss this great event!
