1 Day for the KIA 5k (1D5K)
Saturday, October 15th 2016 at 1100

Online registration is $30 for both in-person and virtual runner options.  Due to generous contributions from our commercial sponsors, we are able to have 100% of the registration fee go directly to the Living Legacy Scholarship Fund!

If you can’t make it to the race, you can still support the Living Legacy Scholarship by signing up as a Virtual Runner.  Virtual Runners will be mailed a bib and t-shirt so you can go for a run anywhere in the world.  We already have runners from as far as Hawaii and England signed up as Virtual Runners!  Please share your experience by posting a picture of you after your run on Facebook or Twitter to help spread awareness for our cause.

Virtual Runner registration closes on October 1st at 2359 so we can ensure that you get your bib and t-shirt by race day.  Online registration for the in-person run will close on October 9th at 2359.  If you forget to sign-up, you can still register on the day of the race for $35.

The 5K for 2016 has ended and is officially closed.

If you have any questions about the race, please email us at races@1dayforthekia.org with the subject line “ATTN: 5k”.
