Packet Pickup

Packet pick-up will be available inside LifeCenter Church race morning starting at 7am. Please arrive early to allow enough time to get your packet and attach your bib number. Do not arrive less than 30 minutes before the start expecting to pick-up your packet.

Start Time

The run start time is 9 am. Although this is a "mass start," we will keep the start line open for 10 minutes (9:00am - 9:10am) to allow more vulnerable individuals to participate with greater distancing.

Thank you for following any updated Covid 19 protocols recommended by the CDC and local health authorities.

Water Bucket Challenge!

Finish the last 100 meters of the race with a bucket of water on top of your head.

Spokenya Run participants can choose to carry water on their heads – Kenyan style. This is how women and girls in Kenya must transport all of the family’s water. Walk in their shoes across the finish line.
