Description: Note about Shirts: Wow Lincoln! We are so humbled by the amazing registration thus far. We want to be sure anyone who wants a shirt does get one. Due to the unexpected popularity, we won't be able to provide a shirt for all participants on race day. However, we will have a sign up list for you at registration to ensure we get your shirt ordered. We will contact you after the order is in and we will arrange for a pick up location for your shirts. Thank you so much for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you! The Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NAND) will host its 1st annual "Fuel Up with Color" 5K race and 1 mile kids' fun run & fitness challenge. This year's 5K and 1 mile fun run & fitness challenge will be both competitive, for those runners who are actively involved in races, as well as family-focused to promote fitness and healthy eating in Nebraskan families while having fun. The 5K race will be a traditional race along a great course at Holmes Lake. Nutrition messages will be spread out along the course to remind you the importance of healthy eating and fueling our bodies with COLOR! The fitness component of the 1 mile run will include physical fitness challenges at each 1/4 mile at food-group stations. At the end of the race, kids will be given colorful stickers from each of the 5 food groups. By promoting the 5 food groups during the races, we are encouraging all runners to "fuel up with color" from nutritious foods to help lead a healthy life! Time Line
  • 8:30 - 5K Start
  • 9:30 - 1 Mile Start
  • Note: The 1 mile will start based on the kids' size of shirt. For example the XS and S will start last, Medium 2nd and Large 1st. That way we don't have big kids running over the little kids. However, if there are families that they want their kids to run together, they are welcome to run together but they just need to be careful to watch out for the little kids if their bigger kids are running.
