About This Activity

The 2017 Book'n It Run for Literacy offers something for everyone!  We feature a USATF-Certified 10K racecourse that is both challenging and fun, as well as a USATF-Certified 5K Run/Walk course, a 1-Mile Fun Run, and a Kids’ 100 Meter Dash that’s specifically for children 10 and under.  In 2016 over 425 participants came out to Book’n It Run, and we hope to have over 500 runners and walkers participating in 2017!
