The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with kids-only races for children 14 and under. The five-mile run will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by the two-mile walk at 6:35 p.m. The pre-registration entry fee for the five-mile run and two-mile walk is $30, while race-day registration is $35. Youth pricing is $10 for children ages 6-14 with no race day price increase. The exclusive kids only races are free.

This is the third race in the 2018 KP Challenge. Participants commit to run three Young Athletes Foundation (YAF) races, including the Saint Fennessy 4K, Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler. The challenge is designed to keep participants on a regular fitness schedule that supports the successful completion of longer distances while raising money for the YAF.

Net proceeds from the Park Point 5-Miler benefit the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF), a Grandma’s Marathon program focused on the promotion and development of healthy and active lifestyles for youth throughout the region. Since its inception in 1990, the YAF has contributed more than $1,000,000 to area nonprofit youth athletic organizations.
