What is RUN3rd? RUN3rd is a global movement sharing dedications made on behalf of people’s loved ones, causes and ideas. It was started by actor, activist and avid long distance runner Sean Astin in January 2012, and has grown to encompass thousands of runners, walkers and others around the globe who have taken its meaning and mission into their hearts. Proceeds from our event will benefit RUN3rd Alliance – a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
RUN3rd Alliance strives to empower youth through after-school running programs that champion students to discover their grit, build meaningful relationships, and inspire healthy communities. Our goal is to provide opportunities for elementary-aged students to learn valuable life-long skills that will help them grow up into productive members of society.
While training for an endurance event, and learning perseverance, goal setting and belief in oneself, RUN3rd also teaches students to think of others. Our students learn to take responsibility for their actions and recognize the impact they have on others, both positive and negative. Our runners learn to see outside themselves, value what others have to offer and celebrate our differences. With your help and support, together, we will empower students, families and their communities!
This race will be chip timed using disposable chip technology by RFID Timing. Timing chips are on the reverse side of your race number. Race numbers should be worn the correct way up, pinned to the front of your shirt and worn over your belly button.
