The Rexy Run/Walk, hosted by BabyJay’s Legacy of Hope, is back and in person this year on Saturday, Aug. 21.
The sixth annual 5K/10K begins and ends in Broken Arrow Park. Both routes wind through the Baker Wetlands and stay off the streets for a peaceful run. All proceeds stay local and help families who have a child fighting cancer. BabyJay’s Legacy of Hope is a 501(c) based out of Lawrence.
Not a runner? We love our walkers! Not a walker either, not comfortable in big groups yet, or going to be out of town that day? We have a virtual option that will allow you to choose your activity. So you can jump on that bike, go for a swim, go out on your kayak — any activity. We will mail your packet to you if you can’t come pick it up so you can still get all the Rexy Run SWAG!
The Rexy Run also has a family option, where you can sign up two adults and your kids for a discounted price. We also have a free Dino Dash for the little kids! This takes place at Broken Arrow Park at the conclusion of the 5K/10K.
We are truly in this fight together against childhood cancer. Go sign up today! Use the code: thelawrencetimes to save $5 off any race.
Online registration closes Thursday, Aug. 19; however, you can still register at packet pickup from 4-7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 20 at Ad Astra, or on race morning at Broken Arrow Park starting at 6:30 a.m.
