Race Series

We. All. Race.

Why We Need This Series

We've learned children race. They get their parents to race too!  The I'mPossible Run Club participates in 5k and mile races around the county.  In each of our last two events, we've had well over 100 runners from our club join. But the Age Group awards make the experience unfair and unrewarding for our youngest runners. 

A 10 year old with a 23.50 5k did not win her age group of 15 and under. The 6 year old who ran a 8 minute mile didn't either. Traditional age groupings are tailored to adults not children.

At the same time, the I'mPossible Run Club is launching a scholarship fund as we begin to offer our program to Title 1 schools in Miami Dade County.

We put those two needs together and created our race series where children compete in fair age groups and 100% of proceeds go directly into our scholarship fund.

Cool! I'm in. Now What?

Participating Races (5k)

The average price in Miami for a 5k is $25. Therefore our series pricing would not be so competitive without the support of the following participating 5k races.

**THESE ARE ALSO THE TARGET RACES FOR ALL RUN CLUB PARTICIPANTS FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2017**

Race fees for 2 of the following 3 races are included in the 5k pricing.

$100 provides a full scholarship for a child to participate in the I'mPossible Run Club program at their school.

Our goal is to provide at least 20 children with full and partial scholarships.
In order to make this Race Series a fundraising success, we are looking for sponsors.  Families, businesses, brands, clubs ... anyone can be a part of the I'mPossible Run Club Scholarship Fund.  For more information, email cristina@ImRunClub.com or call (305) 299-1637.
