2011 is the 11th year of this event! But this year, we are doing things a little differently:
- We have a new name: Run for the House
- We have a new date: October 1, 2011 (in the fall!)
- We have a new location: Ronald McDonald House
- We have a new route: Down Kingman Blvd. Click to see the 5K map & 10K map
- We have dropped the price! $10/$20
- We are adding a fundraising element this year!
