Sozo Children is a non-profit organization that seeks to save suffering children globally by establishing and maintaining Christ-centered orphanages. Our goal for this event is to raise both funds and awareness for the rapidly growing and on-going ministry in Uganda. Long term ministry goals include helping children in Kenya and Papua New Guinea.
The Adventure Race will be held at Hargis Retreat in Chelsea, AL. It is a military style obstacle course where you will have to crawl through mud, climb over obstacles, and possibly wade through a lake. This is a 5k run through the Hargis Retreat. Check-in will begin at 1:00 PM and the race will start at 3:30 PM. You can also register during check-in, but you will not be guaranteed a t-shirt at that time! There will be a time open for you to donate your running shoes at the end of the race. This is optional, but after we clean them we will send them to Uganda, Kenya, and Papua New Guinea.
All runners will be fired off at 3:30pm. However, competitive runners will line up at the start line and there will be a different line, slightly further back for those that are running for fun. The race will be professionally timed with chips that will attach to your shoes for all runners. Teams and individuals will register the same way and for the same price through our Active page. Once teams arrive the day of the event there will be a location that your team can notify the Sozo team that you are running as a team. You either run as an individual or a team, not as both. Begin recruiting now for your team (4-8 runners).
IMPORTANT* This year we are really pushing everyone to PRE-REGISTER to allow our professional timing crew to organize the names and bib numbers in advance. Pre-registration is $38 and registration the day of the race will be $45. Register early! We are excited about the race and promise to make it bigger and better than it was last year. Thank you for all of you that are planning on coming. Simply running this race will allow orphans across the world to be rescued in the name of Christ.
