What we lack in vertical we will make up for with plenty of heat, humidity, and hospitality! The Lifeline Children's Services R(un) for One will take over Choctaw Trails on Saturday, August 28, for a day of running the fantastic singletrack of Butts Park, starting and finishing on the beautiful Choctaw Trails XC course. This year we are adding 25k and 50k options to our annual 5k run and walk. The 25k and 50k will consistent of multiple laps of the 5k course, passing back through the start/finish/aid area each lap.
We will provide water, a sports drink, and other nutrition at the start/finish line are which will be accessible at the end of each lap but runners are welcome to set up your own aid, tents, coolers, chairs, etc. The course is not technical, has a few rolling hills, and is mostly shaded, but the August heat and humidity will provide plenty of challenge! 100% of the proceeds will benefit (un)adopted's work around the world. This varies in each of the 16+ countries where (un)adopted serves, but a few things remain priority — making the name of Jesus known and empowering the local church to care for the more than 140 million children that are fatherless.
