About This Activity

*UPDATE - Because of bad weather the race has been rescheduled for May 23rd at 8:30am!*

8-year-old Peanut began with wanting to raise money for local charities/non-profits while she trained for a 5K race. The idea grew into organizing her own race, so she could raise more money for causes dear to her heart.  Now in its second year, the Peanut 5K will be donating ALL of their profits to Genesis House, which helps the homeless in Siloam Springs, AR and surrounding cities.  Runners pushing strollers are only permitted at the end of the 5k (Due to the narrow path) and are also welcome to join during the 1/2 mile Fun Run.  Support this local organization and join us for a morning of fun!

Any businesses wanting to help by donating prizes for the race or any questions can be emailed to:
