BEST Kids is a local nonprofit organization working to empower youth in DC’s foster care system, one child at a time.
Join us Saturday May 1, 2021 for our Superhero 5K and Fun Run! Race activities will continue throughout the entire month of May in honor of National Foster Care month.
This year, we will hold our race both in-person and virtually. The in-person race will take place May 1st at East Potomac Park (Hains Point). Social distancing will be enforced.
The virtual race is a race that can be run or walked from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on a trail, on a treadmill, or on a track. You get to run your race at your own pace and time it yourself, all while being a Superhero!
The Fun Run distance is 0.5 miles and is geared towards our younger runners. Parents/Guardians should help their smaller Superheroes through the fun run. WE ENCOURAGE ALL RACE PARTICIPANTS TO CONTINUE PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Step 1 – REGISTER for the race
Step 2 – We invite you to download the RunSignUp app where you can keep track of all your race activities.
Step 3 – Show up to Hains Point on May 1st or Complete your race virtually any time between May 1st and May 31st.
