5K, The First Responder
Our 5K starts at 8:30 on SATURDAY – immediately after the KIDS Marathon. It’s flat, it’s fast, it’s a perfect warm-up for your race on Sunday. If you complete both the 5K on Saturday and one of the “Big Dog” races on Sunday, you will qualify for The Phoenix Challenge and earn an extra piece of bling for your trophy cabinet!
Fire fighters who run the 5K in their turnout gear (liners are optional, running shoes are actually encouraged) will receive a MMM custom challenge coin awarded onstage. You are our heroes!
The 5K will be chip timed by our very favorite timing company, Redemption Racing from San Antonio, Texas! The Kids K and 1 Mile Fun Run will remain untimed events, as they should be… Get it? FUN Run? Run Happy!!!
Age Group Winners receive this fabulous medal, suitable for home or office, the hood of your car… it’s pretty special, having been hand crafted by Waco Firefighter Tim Anderson who donated stem cells through the Be Match. When was the last time you received an award like that??
