About This Activity

Kilometers For The Kids is virtual this year! Join us for an interactive weekend, October 9-11, 2020! All proceeds directly benefit the patients and families of UNC Children’s!

A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) in any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on a trail, on the treadmill at the gym or on the track. You get to time it yourself and submit your times online! Whether you live in Chapel Hill or several states away, all are welcome to participate. Run or walk these virtual races on your own, or with family or friends! When you register, you can create and join a team with friends, coworkers, family, a club, or Greek organization. Or register as an individual! Complete a virtual 1 mile Fun Run, 5K, or challenge yourself with our 10K. We have a variety of virtual running events to choose from!

By signing up for one of our races, you will receive a race packet. Your race packet can be picked up in a contactless manner or shipped if you are not local! All race packets will all contain a KFTK shirt, coupons and a For The Kids story. Fun Run packets will also contain a themed activity. 5K packets will also contain an exclusive sticker. 10K packets will also contain an exclusive sticker and sponsor giveaways. For 5K and 10K participants, there will be plaques and medals up for grabs for the top finishers in our categories.

Packet Pick Up Dates:

October 9th at Brandwein’s Bagels 12-3pm  (Stop by Brandwein’s Bagels on October 9th between 6:30am and 3:30pm to buy a bagel :) A portion of their proceeds will benefit Carolina For The Kids and the patients and families at UNC Children’s!
