Continue the Relationship

Stop by the Sponsorship tent before or after the race to learn more about becoming a sponsor for the child on your race bib! You can send your first letter to that child with a picture of you at the 6K. As a thank-you, you’ll receive a WV "faith, hope, and love" tote bag!


Post-Race Party

After you cross the finish line, hang out with family and friends in our post-race village. Grab some refreshments and Chick-fil-A, check out our sponsors and visit the Team World Vision IMPACT tents to experience the life change that your race is bringing about. We'll also have a kid's zone with a petting zone, face painter and games. Lastly, make sure to try your luck with the Jerry Can Shuffle!


Transportation & Parking

Please share a ride with a friend! If you are driving, we encourage all participants to arrive at Lincoln Park by 8:30 am to find parking and avoid missing the start.
