Are you looking for a way to stay active during the winter months? Want to stay connected with the pool community when it’s too cold to be poolside? Introducing the inaugural KPP Run (and Walk) Series! Our community members have put together a series of five different themed events that will run (pun intended) from November through April.
WHO SHOULD REGISTER? EVERYONE!!!! All ages and fitness levels are welcome! No, you don’t have to run the events. You can walk, jog, leisurely stroll, dance, skip, cartwheel, run, or sprint—your race, your pace!
** As usual with KPP, Pool membership not required to attend events... all friends, family and neighbors invited! REGISTER NOW! Entry fees are $10 per adult and $5 per child. Get a 10% discount if you sign up for all five races at once. Race swag includes a custom race sticker and whatever other fun treats we can come up with on a budget. All proceeds from the run series will go to helping keep our pool open.
