Join us for our 1st Annual Pack Run hosted by the Oak Christian School in Brainerd MN.
The Pack Run is a virtual family fun run that will benefit the Oak Street Christian School and its programs. It will offer a 1K, 5k, 10k option for all its participants. Besides paying a fee for participation, runners may also choose to support a school family of their choice by joining a “pack” or creating their own team and finding supporters of their own to contribute toward their goal. You can participate as an individual as well with no team or pack. All are welcome!
This event will take place March 28th-April 4th 2021 and will be virtual. This means that you can participate from your chosen location, the time of day that works best for you and the distance that suits you.
Why is it called the Pack Run?
Each student at the school will find donors, or pack members. For each pack member they receive they will place one book in a backpack. On race day each student will have their pack filled with all their donors/pack members and complete their chosen distance with their pack.
Do I have to wear a backpack to participate?
No you can still get out and get donations for the school and are not required for the public. Only students have to wear the backpack for the race:)
