About This Activity

The 4th annual Run Against Slavery will be on Sunday September 20, 2015. It is a run/walk to help bring awareness of the issue of human trafficking and raise funds for non-profit organizations involved in rescue and restoration of victims. This year's run will benefit Exodus Cry. It will be held at Bosco Plaza on the K-State campus in Manhattan, KS.

Check-in/registration is at 3:30pm and the run starts at 4pm. There will be both a 5K and a 1 mile route and prizes for the top male and female runners of each distance. Both routes will start at Bosco Plaza just north of the K-State Student Union in Manhattan.

The registration fee is $20. The registration fee for children age 8-13 is $10. Registration is available online and on race day, however, those who register online before September 1, 2015 will receive a free shirt. Additional shirts may be purchased but only before September 1, 2015. Leftover shirts from last year will be available to purchase on race day. There will also be either a raffle or silent auction.

Please Note: The event will be held in rain or shine. The race director has the right to cancel or amend the event due to severe weather. The registration fees are non-transferable and non-refundable. This is not a closed course. Please take caution if you are going to push a stroller, run with a dog or listen to music.

Due to construction on campus, the race route will not be available online until race week.
