This year’s 5K/1 Mile Walk will take place on Saturday, October 30, 8:00am at the William Bryan Elementary School located at 1101 SE Sunnyside School Road, Blue Springs. Registration monies will go to the “Carol Tyler Children’s Education Fund.” Carol was the wife of West Central Camp manager Seth Tyler. She died unexpectedly this summer, leaving three young boys behind. We will run in her honor and encourage everyone to wear their favorite costume. Following the race there will be a Toddlers Fun Run for ages four and under. Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers of the 5K (under 18 and over 18 divisions). A best costume award will also be given.
Entry fees: $25 for 5K and $15 for 1 mile walk; $50 total for immediate family. Donations for the Carol Tyler Children’s Education Fund will also be accepted. Packet pick-up will occur on Friday, October 29, from 4:00-7:00pm at Blue Springs Christian Church 7920 South 7 Hwy, under the overhang of the South building; and on Saturday at 7:15am at the race location. To receive a shirt you will need to register by October 20.
Please note, if you are registering as a family, you will need to register for the 5K even if some or all family members are doing the 1 mile walk. This way you can get the $50 family rate. To get the family rate, you will need to create a team on your first registration and then add each additional family member to the team you created. It will initially look like you are paying more than $50 until you click on “Join an Existing Team” for each additional family member. It will reduce to the family rate when you join the team.
