New Race Distance Added to the Lucky Run!

You Asked, We Listened!

We’re all about making it possible for more people to enjoy running and walking, so when we received requests following our Davis Stampede about adding a 2K to our Lucky Run, we got to work.

Today we are pleased to announce that we have added a 2.1K (1.3 miles) to this year’s Lucky Run. It will start at 8:10 am with the 7K and 10K.

Turns out this in-between distance is perfect for parents and kids to run together, people with pups, and for people who are looking for something shorter than the 5K! 

The 2.1K priced at $33 for adults and $25 for kids (17 and under) through March 21, and entry will include a t-shirt, timing, and a finisher medal. While everyone will receive a finish time and ranking, there will not be age group awards (awards have to be ordered quite early).

Because this race does go on city streets, children 12 and under should not run this course without adult supervision. 

General Info About the Lucky Run

The Lucky Run takes place in two weeks on Saturday, March 23. It is held at Davis High School on the west side of the property, with a start and finish in the gym parking lot adjacent to the stadium. There is plenty of nearby free parking.

Schedule of Events:

6:30 am – Bib Pick Up/Registration Opens
8:00 am – 5K Start

All finishers will receive finisher medals (separate medal for Kids Fun Runs). Post race we will have refreshments and pancakes, a photo booth for your post-race pics, and vendor booths.
