Kids K for Clay
Join us for the 1st “Kids K for Clay”–a special activity just for our younger kids (ages 10 and younger) in conjunction with our annual 5K for Clay. The Kids K for Clay will start after the regular 5K is complete, approximately 8:30am. This is a fun run/walk and will not be timed. Parents can choose to run/walk alongside their child or release them to the course with our supportive volunteers and cheering sections from Fleet Feet Round Rock! We will have participant prizes for everyone! Youth runners/walkers will need to choose to sign up for only the 1k or 5K. Please pick the appropriate distance you feel your child is comfortable with.
