Year after year this event is one that family, friends and loved ones are sure to enjoy. Located at the beautiful Regional Park in Midwest City, this 5K was created for all skill levels. Spend the day walking through the park while enjoying the scenery, or have a friendly family challenge to complete all the stations available during the event!

If the beautiful view isn’t enough to convince you to join us, how about all of the activities that this event has to offer?

There will be kids games and activities, face painting, wellness bingo and a canned food drive! In the past, some of the kids games have included jump rope zones, sack races, a hula hoop zone, can toss game, sidewalk chalk, police cruiser tours, photo booths and much much more! 



Wellness bingo will take place before the start of the race, from 1 to 3 PM. This fun activity offers a unique twist on traditional bingo by having participants travel from one wellness booth to the next until a BINGO is clearly marked on the card in hand.

 
Another thing to look forward to on Sunday October 14th is the canned food drive for Mid Del City Food Pantry! As an organization, the mission of Mid Del City Pantry is “to bring help and hope to hungry residents of eastern Oklahoma County by providing safe and nutritious food during difficult times”. If you’re interested in helping out this great cause, bring any extra canned food items you have sitting in your cupboards at home. 


In return for making a contribution, raffle tickets will be given out and there will be a drawing for prizes!

Looking for a way to get in the Halloween spirit? Or maybe you have a Halloween costume planned and you need a way to test it out?


Why not wear costumes while you walk/run! So many of our participants each year like to dress up for the holiday. Some families even wear themed costumes!


That’s what is so great about this event; the freedom to make it as relaxed, exciting, fun, or creative as you want!

If you’re not interested in participating in the 5K but still want to attend, there’s no need to worry! We’re always looking for more volunteers! Our volunteers have a great time helping out and have just as much fun as participants!

Now that you know all of the in’s and out’s of the event, it’s time to mark your calendars. Whether you walk, run, wear a costume, come to compete or come to volunteer, we’re looking forward to seeing you on Sunday October 14th, 2018! Let the ‘Let’s Get Midwest City Moving’ Family Fun 5k begin!
