12Ks for the Holidays is a fundraiser for the Good Samaritan Center, a nonprofit social service agency serving families in emergency crisis situations for over 40 years. The race includes a 12k run, 5k run/walk, and a Free Kids One-Mile Fun Run. Sadly, the post-race festivities are canceled this year due to the pandemic, but we are planning exciting virtual activities! This year's theme is "Baby, it's COVID outside!" The event looks a whole lot different this year, but hey, we're making the most of it! Registration is now open on RaceRoster and will close on November 30. Participants get to pick their distance as well as their swag options! Individuals do their race alone or with friends (socially distanced, of course!). Racers can do their mileage at anytime and anyplace and are encourage to post their times on RaceRoster and share photos of their adventure on our Facebook event page! If allowed by city officials, our race timing companies will be on location (Cedars/Fondren) on Nov. 21st from 7 a.m. - 12 p.m. with a marked course to allow participants to run and clock their own time.
