The Back in the Day K is an event born in the hearts of runners who wanted to create an event for people of all ages and skill levels. This event would be efficient, fun and rewarding and would get people into their days earlier than other events
Our struggle was creating an event that was different than the others and where participants could experience pure joy during and after. We wanted a special theme and a cause that speaks for itself. A groovy 70's tune was playing in the background while discussions were taking place and The Back in the Day K was born. This old school event comes alive with 70's music, sweatbands, tube socks, and tie dye.
The cause was one of the most important considerations. What is a serious need in our community? Animal Rescue. There are many animals, mainly cats and dogs, that are mistreated and left for dead or brutally abused. Rescue groups fill the void left by public shelters. Not only are animals rescued, but through the love given by volunteers, these animals are nursed back to complete health then are ready to be adopted and placed in their forever homes.
This event is for the groovy. We understand what you want. Join the GROOVY at the Back in the Day K on August 24, 2019. The 15K run will get you movin’ and the 5K run/walk with keep you groovin’. We’ll see YOU there!
