New Year's Eve Karen Lawrence Run for St. Jude

Price: $25 - $30


This event has already happened.

Wind down 2013 with a healthy run that's good for you and for others. The Sports Barn's annual Karen Lawrence Run benefits St. Jude Children's Hospital. Participants can do a 4.1 mile run or a 2.1 mile fun run/walk. The longer race starts at 6:30 p.m., and the shorter race at 6:45 p.m.

Since 1979, The Karen Lawrence Run has been held in the same location at The Sports Barn in downtown Chattanooga. With all proceeds going to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, participants, sponsors and private donors have given the hospital nearly $4 Million over the past 33 years. New Year's Eve 2012 will mark the 34th year for this event, making it the oldest and longest running charity event for St. Jude. Please join us this December 31st and be a part of this year's celebration.

The 4.2 Mile main event and 2.1 Mile fun run/walk will start on Broad Street behind the downtown Sports Barn, turn up 3rd St. and cross the Walnut St. bridge. Turning right onto Frazier Ave., it will then enter Coolidge park on Tremont St., make a quick loop (around the big purple rhino), then return to downtown along the same path. Terrain is moderate to hilly, providing all participants with the most scenic route in the history of this race. There really is no way better way to end 2013 and prepare for a wonderful 2014 than to participate in an event such as this, benefiting a hospital that has dedicated so many years to treating children afflicted with childhood cancer. Do your heart some good, both physically and spiritually. And bring along your family and friends to share in the experience. We look forward to seeing you there!

Early registration is $25, later registration is $30.
