The 23rd Annual KFRX Mayor's Run starts early Saturday morning, at 8am. Starting at the State Capitol Building, 15th and H st, the children will run for one mile. Children will run in various groups and at intervals of about 15 - 20 minutes to avoid a big crush.
Boys in grades 5-6 will be running first followed by the girls of the same grade. Next will be 3-4th grade boys, the girls, then boys and girls of 2nd grade and under. In the final two stages adults may accompany the runners. No skaters or dogs will be allowed to participate!
Each runner will receive a free kids meal from Applebees and various coupons etc from sponsors. 30 bikes will also be awarded to the winners.
Every year the Mayor's Run gives back to charity and this year $1 of each entry will go to the Heartland Big Brothers and Big Sisters program.
Your child may already be running in this event or maybe your child's school has runners taking part, even if you know of no one running it is always wonderful for the children to hear and see a large supportive crowd. Go along for the atmosphere and enjoy the fun.
