What: What: Kicks in the Sticks is a fundraiser and trail race. You can choose to run, walk, or just come along for the festivities. The general idea is a run through the woods just before dark surrounded by a jamboree / festival / party atmosphere. Three distances available of approximately 1.2, 3.5, and 7.5 miles through the woods followed by live music, food & beer.

Unique awards are made by kids from The HALO Foundation!

Must be 10 years of age to participate in any distance of choice. If under 10 years old, a child may participate in the 1.2 mile distance walk with a parent present at all times.

When: August 12th will be the 6th annual Rotaract Kicks in the Sticks.
**See approximate time line below.

Where: Binder Park, Jefferson City. Mass start near the old bait shop (near Henwick Lane).

Why: To raise funds for Rotaracts service partners, The HALO Foundation & Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri, promote Jefferson City and Rotaract, and offer a unique experience to area residents.

Gear needed by participants: Typical running / walking equipment. Trail shoes helpful but not necessary

Strollers on the Course: We want to emphasis that the trails at binder are bumpy, rocky & unstable at times. This makes it difficult to push a stroller while racing. However, if a participant walks or runs with a stroller, we ask that they start at the back of the pack.
