The 8th Annual C.A.R.R. 5k (that’s Camo America Rainbow Run) will take place Saturday, June 12th at 6pm in memory of Keith Carr.
Andrew Keith Carr was a jovial, fun-loving 21 year old from Greencastle, Indiana. He was preparing for his junior year at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, majoring in Supply Chain. While studying abroad for a summer term in Rome, Italy, Keith died in a tragic accident on June 11th, 2013. A memorial race, the C.A.R.R. 5k was created in his honor, with over 200 participants in its inaugural event in Greencastle, Indiana in June of 2014.
Among the things that made Keith a unique guy, he was particularly fond of camouflaged apparel, anything American themed, and colorful attire to match his colorful personality, hence the C(amo). A(merica). R(ainbow). Run.
Pay tribute to Keith’s unique sense of style by running, walking, trotting, or strutting 3.1 miles sporting any number of his favorite themes. Costumes/outfits are highly encouraged and combination themes may even earn awards. In the spirit of Keith, please wear something that would put a smile on his face, if you feel so inclined (and we hope you do).
A Kinetic Change, Inc. is the official benefiting charity for this race. AKC aims to increase community physical activity by creating recreation facilities, organizing fitness events, and motivating you to convert your potential energy into kinetic energy with movement.
The 2021 in-person C.A.R.R. 5K will start and finish at Deer Meadow Primary School. If you can't join us in person, we'd love to still have your support virtually from wherever you are on June 12th. We hope to see your photographic race day evidence from across the country! Our usual post-race festivities in downtown Greencastle will be postponed until later in the summer, but that doesn't mean you can't still have fun at the race! Dress to impress and we look forward to sharing race day with you!
Thanks and Just Smile Back.
