Event Information

The 4th Annual Run for the Son will be held on Saturday, June 14, 2014, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 1111 4th Ave W in Spencer, Iowa. Event registration and race packet pickup begins at 6:30 AM in the Parish Hall. The 5K Walk/Run will begin at approximately 7:30 AM. For updates and additional information, we recommend that you follow us on Facebook.

This year we have decided to omit the 10K race from our event. Our team is comprised entirely of volunteers, and we found that our resources are spread thin when divided between two races. We elected to focus our collective energy on one race in order to better serve you, our participants. Thank you for your support!
