Kilometers For the Kids
Carolina For The Kids is hosting its third annual Kilometers FTK 5K, 10K, and one-mile Fun Run on Nov. 22, beginning 9 a.m. at the Old Well! This is an event for people of all ages: students, families, you name it!
Registration for this year's Kilometers FTK is now live! Registration for the 10K costs $25, $20 for the 5K, and $17 for the Fun Run. All registrations completed by Nov. 9 also include a guaranteed t-shirt (registrations after that date also include a t-shirt as supplies last). Additionally, the top three runners in each category of the 5K and 10K will receive a prize! The 5K and 10K will start at 9 am while the Fun Run will begin fifteen minutes before.
There will be pre- and post-race activities, along with light refreshments at McCorkle Place, one of UNC’s historic quads right next to the Old Well! Please join us on November 22nd for a fun-filled and inspiring morning.
We will be holding packet pickup on Friday, November 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Pit and from 5–7 p.m. at Rams Head Plaza, both at UNC-Chapel Hill. Free parking is available after 5 p.m. on Stadium Drive, which is very close to Rams Head Plaza.
Registration will open at 8 a.m. across from the Old Well on Saturday morning and same-day registration will also be available. Stretches led by Camp Gladiator will begin at 8:30 a.m., and we will hear from Dr. Wesley Burks, chair of the UNC Department of Pediatrics and Physician-in-Chief of N.C. Children's Hospital, as well as Kid Co-Captain families. We will also be making a big announcement for Carolina FTK that you will not want to miss!
Free parking is available for the race at Cobb Parking Deck, about a 5–10 minute walk from the Old Well.
Fleet Feet Sports in Carrboro will also be holding benefit nights Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week where mentioning Carolina FTK at checkout will have part of your purchase go to our fundraising!
