The event includes a Kid’s Fun Run and a 5K. Adults who register by March 14th will receive a t-shirts (while supplies last) and students are encouraged to show their spirit by wearing their school gear. The race will be officially timed and prizes will be awarded for top finishers in each category, 1) the best male and 2) female, and 3) registered participants 12 and under. The school with the highest number of registrations wins a FREE breakfast for their teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation week.
