There will be three aid stations and light snacks and refreshments following the race. Walkers are welcome; however there is a 2.5 hour time limit to finish the race.

What is CrossFit Kids?
CrossFit Kids is a chance for you to bring your child (ages 5 – 14) to the race and have them participate in exciting and focused athletic activities while you race! Simply fill out the proper forms and leave your child with our trained, certified and licensed experts who will take care of your kids during the race. Children will participate in running, climbing and calisthenics. They will receive a nutritious snack and take home information. Chances are they may have a tougher work-out then you! And it is all free, courtesy of Wilkes Barre Racing and the Logos Fund. Dedicated to creating a heritage of health and fitness for the entire family.
You can register on-site on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 7:30am or you can register in advance by downloading the form below or signing up online.

Spring Adoption Matching Event

- adoption of local children is essentially free?
- people who can't make the commitment to take a child into their home can still help kids get a family by becoming a court appointed child advocate with CASA?
Profiles of dozens of children who need a home right here, right now will be available. Agency representatives and local foster and adoptive parents will answer any and all your questions. Free and open to everyone, this is your chance to help local children get forever homes.
