The 11th Annual Special Kids Race will be hosted Saturday, March 19, 2022 - at the campus of presenting sponsor, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & Surgicenter (1272 Garrison Drive, Murfreesboro, TN 37129). In the ten plus year history of this event, nearly 3,000 participants have gathered together to show their support... Organizers are planning for another great crowd to benefit the children and families served at Special Kids Therapy & Nursing Center, a local non-profit organization "serving Jesus Christ by caring for His children..."

Participants can sign up to run or walk in any of the available distances leading up to the day of the event. This includes the 15K for $60, 10K for $60, 5K for $55, One-Mile "Fun Run" for $30, or "Virtual Runner" at-home participation option for $25. Packet pick-up for those registered will be held Friday, March 18 at New Vision Baptist Church (1750 N Thompson Lane, Murfreesboro, TN 37129) from 9 AM to 7 PM. Both the 15K and 10K distances will begin at 7 AM, shortly followed by the 5K start at 7:15 AM and the One-Mile "Fun Run" 8:45 AM.

Cost of registration includes entry into the distance of your choice, finisher medal, and official 2022 Special Kids Race t-shirt along with access to goods provided by onsite sponsor tents. The support of event sponsors ensures the money collected through registration goes back to providing for local families served at the Special Kids campus. Supporters, including those taking part in the 11th Annual Special Kids Race, are also encouraged to continue their involvement leading up to the event by fundraising on their own or contributing to an existing fundraising team. Top earners, along with top finishers in each distance, will be honored following the conclusion of the 15K race.

Like every Special Kids Race to date, the event will be held on the campus of Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & Surgicenter; participants will run or walk on a course that travels from Old Nashville Highway into the Stones River National Battlefield park.
