Get the details so you’ll be ready for this event.
How Long Is a 3K?
It’s the question burning in everyone’s minds. How long is a 3K? You might be kicking yourself for not paying better attention during the metric lesson in math class, but don’t despair. A 3K is 1.86 miles. Don’t worry if that seems far. You can walk the race. Don’t forget to wear your fitness device. You want to get credit for all of those steps even if you’re just walking.
Parents, Start Your Engines!
You can’t just drop your child off in his or her ugliest sweater and head over to a friend’s house. Parents and guardians have to stay with their kids during the event. Pick out your own ugly sweater to wear, and lace up those racing shoes. This is a family event, so you’ll need to be there.
Don’t Be Competitive
So, you like to compete? You like to watch those kids eat your dust, but you’ll have to leave your competitive nature at home. This race is for fun only. That means you can’t push any kids down to get ahead of them, and you can’t tease them if you cross the finish line first. This is just about having a good time.
What Comes with Registration?
Registration doesn’t just include a spot on the starting line. Sure, you get to run the race, but your child will also get a T-shirt. Sorry, no shirts for mom and dad. Everyone will get to enjoy refreshments after the race, though. Just head to the Kuegel Shelter to refuel after you make it through the race.
Your racing shoes will get you to the finish line on race day, but they can’t take you everywhere you want to go. You’ll need some wheels from time to time, and Don Moore Automotive in Owensboro, Kentucky, can help. Stop by today and let us help you find the right ride for your needs.
