Run & Walk for Children
Mark your calendar and begin training for the 27th Annual Family Enrichment Center Run and Walk for Children to be held on Saturday, March 25, 2023. Funds from this event support child abuse prevention services in South Central Kentucky.
There are three race categories to choose from: Half Marathon (13.1 miles), 5K Run, 5K Fun Walk (3.1 miles each). The Half Marathon and 5K Run will be chip-timed by Bluegrass Timing. All participants will receive a long-sleeve race shirt and finishers medal. Participants that register before the Early-Bird Deadline (2.11.23) will also receive a complimentary ticket to the pre-race Pasta Party schedule for Friday, March 24th at the Ephram White gymnasium from 5-7 PM. Pasta Party meal tickets may be purchased for $7 each for those registering after the deadline or in need of additional tickets for non-participants.
This year our children’s race, the Kids 100 Yard Dash, will be held in conjunction with our Pasta Party and Family Wellness Expo to better allow family members to cheer on their young runner. Registration for the Kids Dash is FREE until the Early-Bird Deadline and $10 thereafter. Participants will receive a finisher’s medal and race shirt (while supplies last)! Please note, kids sizes are limited and only available while supplies last. Size requests will be honored first come, first serve based on registration date.
The Family Wellness Expo is free to attend and open to all community members. The Expo will feature wellness vendors as well as family/child-centered organizations from the community. If you or your organization is interested in being a vendor email [email protected].
