Runners and walkers, come join us for O.U.R. Phoenix Rescue Run sponsored by Knight Transportation and Western Transport Logistics and sanctioned by USATF. Course will be held at the Peoria Sports Complex, a perfect location for a fast, flat race. Disposable timing chips provided by Race Timers. T-shirts and custom medals given to every participant who completes the 5k with prizes awarded to the top finishers in each category. Categories are as follows: 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Male and Female Overall Finishers and 1st Place Overall Male and Female in Age Groups: 12-19,20-29,30-39,40-49,50-59,60+.
Following the 5k, a 1-mile Kids Run will be held with each participant receiving a medal, race bib, and free entry to the Kids Zone provided by our sponsor, Knight Academy. Parents can run their 5k while their child plays on inflatables, makes balloons, etc. and waits for their turn to run!
Phoenix is known for perfect running weather in December with lows in the 50’s and highs in the mid 80’s. All proceeds will directly benefit Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), a non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue and rehabilitate children sold in sex slavery. Please come join us for a worthy cause and maybe attain a Personal Record in the process!
