There is also a 1 Mile CAREacter Fun Walk so dress up as your favorite character and come walk with us to fight childhood hunger. Our experienced CARE team is going to put on an event that is guaranteed fun for the whole family!

Come join us on Labor Day for the best race of the season. Free breakfast, race photos, racers tech shirt, and family zone. Let’s race together to fight childhood hunger!
