Don’t want to run the full 5K? THAT’S OK.
Just run for fun, and stop when you are done.
You don’t have to run the full 5K, that’s OK!
Growing up, we were all told NOT to run with scissors….well, now is your chance to do exactly what you were told not to do! For this race, and this race only – it’s FUN to run with scissors!
Sign up today to break the rules and run with safe, 15″ scissors, and color yourself silly to support the Baseballtown Charities Dream League – A new league and a new Savage 61 Dream Field that will allow children with physical and developmental challenges to play real baseball, on a real field, on a real team!
