About

This event is part of the Schoolhouse Rocks Fall Race Series

 

Fuentes Elementary is raising money to send our fourth graders on a three day, two night trip to Camp Champions.

This is quite possibly the flattest course you've seen!  Chip-timed 5K and chip-timed Solis Memorial Mile.  Full age group awards for both distances.  (You must register for the 5K and for the 1 mile in order to be timed in both.  Your bib will not work for both events.)

 

Solis Memorial Mile is in memory of Officer Solis and in honor of suicide prevention and awareness month.  Donations made during the registration process (and on race morning) will go directly to Kyle Law Enforcement Association to aid in their efforts to train officers, for themselves and our community, on suicide awareness and prevention tools.  Kyle Law Enforcement Association desires to break the silence and prevent suicides while improving officer mental health.  Help us support our local officers!
