‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’ orders prohibit gatherings of any size, but fear not – essential activities include outdoor activities like walking and running! Instead of having a physical run, the 14th Annual Lockhart Kiwanis 5K Stampeded invites participants to a new virtual run to be held Thursday, April 9 through Sunday, April 12. Money raised through the 5K Stampede are used to fund scholarships to graduating seniors. Over the last 13 years, Lockhart Kiwanis Club has given out over $120,000 to more than 100 students, and is committed to continuing its legacy.

How It Works:
The Run (April 9-12): Yes, you still run! We’ll have a window of days for you to complete your run. Be sure to record your time. Since the recommendations are that you keep 6 feet from another person, you might choose to run by yourself, or you might run a comfortable distance from your favorite running partner. You can run the course that we’ve already certified, or run your favorite route. You can even do your run on a treadmill if you like. Your course just needs to be a 1K or 5K depending on if you registered for the Fun Run/Walk or the 5K Stampeded. Participants can also use the certified 5K course which can be viewed in the discussion comments of the Facebook event page.
Registration: Online registration will be open until midnight on Tuesday, April 7. We will waive the late registration fee. 13 and older will be $25. 12 & under is $10 for the Stampede. The Fun Run will be $10 for all ages. Fees include a t-shirt and swag bag. Register using the Website link at the bottom of this page.
Teams: You may add to your team to compete in the team challenge. Remember you need 7 people to qualify for this challenge. Registration for groups: $20 per person.
The Race: Your times will still be officially recorded! The tracking website will be open for entries beginning Thursday, April 9 and will close at midnight on Sunday, April 12. Once all times have been entered, we will score the race just as normal and the results will appear the same as if all of us had run together. Submit your recorded run time using the link: https://www.racetecresults.com/Results.aspx?CId=119&RId=294
Swag and Packets: You will receive the swag bag, t-shirt and bib by mail after the virtual run is closed.
The Awards: We will mail winners awards along with the swag bags and t-shirts. Team awards will be sent to the originator of the group. We are asking that you take a picture with your award and/or team and their award (when appropriate) and post to our Facebook page.
