ABOUT THE RACE
Runners and walkers, come join us for O.U.R. Phoenix Rescue Run Sponsored by Knight Transportation and Sanctioned by USATF to kickoff your fall racing season! Course begins on smooth High School track and exits to nearby Scenic Park on a flat and fast, straight 5k course before ending a final lap on the track. Family and Stroller friendly. Race t-shirts and token medals given to every participant who completes the 5k with prizes awarded to the top finishers in each category. Following the 5k, a 1-mile Kids Run will be held on the track with each participant receiving a token medal.
Phoenix is known for perfect running weather in October with lows in the 60’s and highs in the mid 80’s. All proceeds will directly benefit Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue children from sex slavery. Please come join us for a worthy cause and maybe attain a Personal Record in the process!
