This is our 7th Year!!!
Join us this Memorial Day for a fun event for the entire family which supports Family Promise of Lawrence, an organization which has a mission to serve those in a situation of homelessness.
The 5K Home Run will be May 27, 2019. Due to some permit issues on our part and barricade requirements in city policy, we had to change our run route. See an updated course map here. The city needs us to utilize the sidewalks and there will be some brick running so please be careful and be aware of this change for strollers. More than 2/3rds of the race will be on the Burroughs Creek Trail. Because this is an out and back course, please stay to the left and go clockwise on roundabouts. This course will be accurately measured but will not be a certified course.
Start time is 8:30 am, rain or shine. If lightening is present the run will be delayed in hopes of it passing through.
Music, bouncy houses, the Bubble Lady and other activities for children will follow. There will also be a supply drive for ongoing needs. Here is a Wish List of items that would be welcome. 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.
Did you miss the early signup discount deadline? It's not too late to form a team and save $5 each (for 4 or more, by May 26th). Contact Lori at 785-331-7032 for details and get a team of friends or family together for some fun 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. Sign up to help here.
