"Wake Up And Smell The Pine Trees" at the 2018 Kickers For Kids Fun Run located at the Palmer Lake Regional Recreation Area in Palmer Lake, Colorado on Saturday, July 21, 2018. The 2018 Kickers For Kids Fun Run is an event for all levels of runners and a great opportunity to just get out, exercise, and enjoy all of the beauty of the New Santa Fe Regional Trail under a nice warm Colorado summer sun.
Choose your Santa Fe Trail distance challenge 0.82 Miles, 5K, 10K, 13.1 Miles, 26.2 Miles, 50K, or the Front Range 50 Miler and we’ll provide you with the tools (i.e. Aid Stations, Hydration, Encouragement) to accomplish your personal distance goal. Run, Walk, or feel free to stop and take pictures of Mother Nature while on your Santa Fe Trail running journey because the 2018 Kickers For Kids Fun Run is a NO PRESSURE running event!
This event is being designed to promote recreational physical fitness, to showcase the beautiful Santa Fe Trail, and to help raise funds to purchase new running shoes (i.e. Kickers) for our budget constrained little runners. All proceeds (minus event expenses) from the 2018 Kickers For Kids Fun Run will be donated to the Landsharks Running Club of Colorado Springs so they can continue to aid families whose children are interested in pursuing the sport of running. As we all know, a good pair of running shoes is every runner’s best friend!
