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 and 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 11th will be the 7th 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.
