In addition to the 5K Run/Walk, Kalahari Waterpark Resort is hosting the 5th annual Kalahari 1K Kid’s Fun Run. The run is open to children up to age 12. The track will be supervised and every youngster participating will receive a commemorative T-shirt, refreshments, and a chance at valuable door prizes. Registration fee is $3.

Because of their generosity, entrants will receive a commemorative T-shirt, a runner’s bag of goodies, refreshments and a chance for numerous door prizes, in addition to awards for the top overall male and female finishers and the top three in each age division.
