Nutrition 5K & Kid K 

Saturday, March 29 - Evergreen Park - Carbondale

This race is the perfect spring warm-up! Our course is fast and flat and goes through scenic SIUC Campus Woods. Year after year we hear about how folks love the perks of our event: the pre-race massages, the conch shell call to start the race, all the kids excited about running, not to mention all the buzz of spring time in the air. There are tables piled high with healthy post-exercise indulgences: from-scratch muffins made in the Co-op's bakery, fresh organic fruits and other munchies. Plus, lots of door prizes from local merchants (must be present to win.) And an ever popular part of the festivities, the rollicking music of RognboB. 

You may register online or pick up an application at the store

As we have every year, all the proceeds of the race will be donated to the Good Samaritan Food Pantry & Soup Kitchen. Participants are encouraged to bring canned goods to donate.
