The Route

The route will begin with a lap around the Chimacum High School Track.  We will exit school property to the left and take a lap around Wade's Loop before coming back down West Valley to cross SR 19 and travel down Fern Way to enter HJ Carroll Park.  We will round the back side of the HJ trail to the new Tollefson Trail and take it along side Spring Rain Farm to Chimacum Road.  From there we will travel south, cross SR 19 again at the Chimacum Corner 4-way stop, and Enter Finnriver Cidery from Center Road.

NOT a Chipped Race

While our run is an excellent way to get in shape for our much loved Rhody Run on May 19, WE Feed Kids is NOT a chipped run and timing of the event will be loose.  Please know that if you are focused on getting a precise time for this run, you may want to be timing yourself.  Our timers will do their best to be accurate, but with road crossings and no fancy chip machine, our focus is on fun and fundraising!  Thank you for your understanding.

Post Run

Fruits, veggies, sparkly water and a sampling of food from Tanzania will be provided to all participants.  Prizes will be awarded in the long barn.  Walk carefully back to the school parking lot when finished.

Race Safety Rules

  • Sorry, no dogs, skates, bikes or rollerblades allowed.
  • Strollers are welcome but must start at the back of the pack.
  • Do not use earbuds or headphones. It is important that you be able to hear traffic and instructions given by our officials on the course.  Chatting with friends is fun!
  • Road crossings to be made with crossing guards only.
  • Children need to remain with guardians on the route as it will follow roadways.
  • All participants must sign a waiver before the run.
  • Stay on the course, look out for one another, and have fun!

Prizes

Fundraising Prizes will be awarded at the 4 schools and in the community for top $ raised by teams or individuals.  Run Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female finishers in the following categories:  Ages 5-9; Ages 10-14; Ages 15-18; and Adult but this is a mellow race that will require some waits for crossing guards at road crossings.  Time will be a bit loose because of these crossings.

Story

Our Story & Mission

The Community Wellness Project is partnering with students of the WE Act Club of Chimacum Middle and High School to organize WE Feed Kids 5K, a community walk/run event that will be held on April 27th. Our WE Feed Kids 5K is designed for students, families and community members of all ages to have fun, get exercise, and raise money for healthy food. As the mission of the WE Act Club includes doing service work regionally and around the world, proceeds of the event will be used to support healthy food in both our local schools and at Emburis Primary School in Tanzania. The inspiration comes from statistics that are hard to swallow. 1 in 6 Washington kids lives in a household that faces challenges in putting enough food on the table. 34% of children in Tanzania are stunted by hunger by age 5.
