Team Challenge 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk
St. Charles, MO- Lindenwood University’s Recreation Department will be hosting the 3rd annual Kilometers for Chris event on April 27, 2014. This year’s event is a team building challenge. Teams comprised of 4-5 members will compete in a fun atmosphere overcoming obstacles as a team. At each kilometer, there will be a different challenge to complete. All of the challenges are accessible for anyone but will require teamwork. There will also be a 1-mile fun run for those who wish to support the cause, or do not want to compete in the team challenge.
The event will take place on the Lindenwood University-St. Charles Campus. The course starts on the Heritage Campus at Roemer Hall and runs through the entire campus ending in Hunter Stadium. Both runs will begin at 9:00 a.m.
The Kilometers for Chris event was started in 2012 in support of Chris Lister, an alum of Lindenwood University-St. Charles, who was struck by a car while participating in a 10K run and seriously injured. All proceeds are donated to support Chris in his recovery.
Participants can register online at www.lindenwood.edu/kilometersforchris. Pre-registration ends on April 13, 2014. Prices increase after pre-registration. Sponsorships and volunteers are needed.
