Participants with "run" (walking is fine) in a Half K (or .31 miles or 1640 feet). You and your friends will check in at 2350 Athens Avenue in Redding, CA.
But .31 miles is a long way, so there is a refreshment station at the halfway point. At the bridge, you will be refreshed with not just a water station, but complimentary mini donuts. Now that you have all your energy reserves filled up, you'll head back to the finish line.
At the completion of the Half K, all participants get a 1st place medal and are greeted with a complimentary beer from Woody's Brewery. Racers will also get an event t-shirt as well as the amazingly smug .31 oval sticker for your car.
This year, we're adding a decathlon with lots of fun activity stations that will live up to the Chris Hall Half K name. There will also be beer and food vendors available for purchase as well as 80's music for those that want to hang out.
And, yes sir (or ma'am), do we have a great charity. All of the proceeds go to Shasta Dam Kiwanis Food For Kids Program. Every week, they give over 115 kids in need backpacks full of nutritious food. They fill the bags on Thursdays, hand them out on Fridays, and get them back on Mondays. They do this every Friday during the school year for kids who would otherwise not eat. It's a great program and we'd love your support. Even if you can't be there, consider our Virtual Participant, where we send you all the SWAG and you can tell everyone you were there!
