My Kid’s Club’s 44th Annual Railroad Days 5K Run/ Walk is Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 8:30am! We’re thrilled to host the event  this year IN-PERSON (we also have a virtual option for those who want to support from anywhere). This 5K road course is a flat and fast USATF certified course. We also offer a FREE 1 Mile Kids Fun Run for our younger participants after the 5K takes off. After the Run/ Walk, stick around to enjoy the Railroad Days festival fun with food, entertainment and more.

The MKC 5K Run/ Walk registration fee is $25 per person as an early bird deal before 8/30/2021; $35 after 8/30/2021. An awesome short-sleeve Railroad Run race t-shirt is included FREE for those registered before 9/13/21. All proceeds support My Kid’s Club’s daily operations.

All participants have the option to be timed with a race bib, but recreational non-timed participants are very welcome and will have a great time. Only timed participants will receive an official record of their finish time. DOGS ARE WELCOME – must be kept on a leash at all times.

Awards will be given to the top runners in age and gender categories.

Shirt and race packet pickup will be held Friday, October 1 from 9:00am-6:00pm in the parking lot behind Selma Elementary School (311 West Richardson Street). For group teams of more than 15 and school teams, t-shirts and packets will be delivered before the race. We are offering t-shirt shipping for out of town participants, but cannot guarantee those participants will receive their shirt before race weekend.

Corporate Team, Group Team and Sponsorship options are encouraged and available. Register now at
