Racing Cane 10k/5k/1k
Welcome to the Racing Cane 10k, 5k and 1k kids race! This race benefits children living in the impoverished cane shack communities of the Dominican Republic who walk over 5 kilometers to school – many without shoes on their feet.
Run13 and the Racing the Cane Foundation are committed to improving the lives of these children in the Dominican Republic’s sugarcane fields. Our goal is to encourage local community involvement in raising both scholarship funds and shoes for distribution. During this year’s Racing Cane event, runners will have the opportunity to collect and donate shoes. After the race we will journey to the Dominican Republic to distribute the shoes and host a free running event for the children there. Part of your registration fee will go towards sponsoring Dominican children to attend English academies, as those who speak English have a greater chance of attaining further education, becoming employed, and thus breaking out of the sugarcane fields. We believe that education and enterprise can help stop the cycle of poverty and give these children the option of a better life. Come join us and the Racing the Cane Foundation for this important event. All 10k and 5k runners will be chip timed, receive gender specific Tech Shirts, and enjoy a party at the finish line with Magleby’s Fresh breakfast, massages, medals ceremony and giveaways, bounce houses and face painting for kids!
*Kids 1k races will begin at 9:00 am. All kids who sign up for the 1k kids race will receive a race Tech Shirt, Magleby’s Fresh breakfast, and enjoy the same party and race atmosphere as the rest of the runners, all for only $10!
