All proceeds from the event will benefit Kids on the Move and Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports. The annual event has become a staple among the “first 5Ks of the season,” where all ages and abilities are welcome to walk or run for two local causes.

The 5K course starts and finishes at VSMC located at 5 Albert Cree Drive, across from Rutland Regional Medical Center. Pre-registration is suggested. The first 100 to pre-register will receive an event t-shirt. The pre-registration entry fee is $20 for adults ages 18 and older and $15 for kids ages 10-17. The day of registration entry fee is $25 for adults ages 18 and older and $20 for kids ages 10-17. Kids under 10 are $5 and adaptive athletes participate for free.

Race day registration will be 8-9:30 a.m. The Adaptive Athlete Run will start at 9:45 a.m. The Kids Fun Run will begin at 10 a.m. and the 5K Run/Walk will immediately follow it. Refreshments will be available for all participants, and prizes will be awarded to first-place finishers in all runner age groups.

Runners, walkers, sponsors and volunteers will join us in support of Kids on the Move pediatric rehabilitation program and Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports. We’re proud that with our sponsor support we have been able to donate over $70,000 to these valuable programs.
