Raffle - we have several gift baskets that you can "bid on" with raffle tickets. Each entrant will get tickets, and you can purchase more tickets (cash or debit) onsite. All proceeds go to the 1DOS Foundation www.1dosf.org to help us continue our fitness scholarship work.
Coffee and treats - Sweet Tee Coffee Shop of Olathe will be on hand with tasty treats and beverages if you have a craving!
1DOS Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization based in Olathe, dedicated to providing fitness scholarships. We find candidates who are looking to get healthy, needing to get fit (often for medical reasons) - but can't afford the associated costs. Our scholarships provide gym memberships, fresh produce, and other assistance to these committed individuals.
Safe racing guidelines courtesy of KC Running Company:
- Drive thru packet pickup
- Encourage masks to be worn pre and post race when not running
- Bib chips instead of shoe chips so no volunteers are in the finish chute removing timing chips
- Grab and go bags with medals, swag, bottled water, and post race snacks are set out on a table at the finish for the finishers to pick up
- Generally trying to reduce contact and congestion and promote social distancing
