5K Home Run
May 28, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am$20 – $30
Join us this Memorial Day for the 6th annual family-friendly 5K Home Run that supports Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization serving families experiencing homelessness.
The 5K Home Run will be May 28, 2018, in beautiful downtown Lawrence, Kansas. The race starts at South Park, 11th & Massachusetts St., at 8:30 a.m., rain or shine. If lightning is present, the run will be delayed in hopes of it passing through. FYI: Metered parking is free on holidays.
This is a fast, certified course. First-time racers, runners, walkers, strollers, and dogs on leash with their owners are welcome. Music, a short fun run and other activities for children will follow. There will also be a supply drive for ongoing needs. Donations, cash or checks made out to Family Promise Lawrence (5K on memo line) can be brought to Sunday packet pick-up or to the Supply Drive table Monday.
Register by May 1 for the early bird rate of $25 (save $5). Back again this year: Sign up four or more participants by May 23 and save $5 each, so put together a team and get some friendly competition going for a good cause!
Can’t run or want to help at other times? We need volunteers to help make this event the most successful yet! Help with packet stuffing, kids’ activities or cheer on runners as a course marshal.
