The Lakeland Area Kiwanis Club has a great new race called the Get Your
Ks On run. This 1K/5K/10K run will be timed, challenging and fun. It
will be held at the Minocqua Park Complex on Hwy 70W on Saturday, April
27th. The cost is $25 and you can register online at www.tandhtiming.com.
Registration the day of the event starts at noon and the race will
start at 1PM. The first 200 entries will receive a t-shirt and a goody
bag. This fun, family event will offer something for all ages. The 1K
walk/run will have art stations where kids can build their K to show
they got their K on. Kid sprints will start after the 5K runners get
back. There will also be a variety of games that kids can play, as well
as entertainment. The proceeds from this run will go to a Kiwanis
Autism Project that will help kids in the Lakeland area. So mark your
calendar, bring the family and get ready to Get Your Ks On!
