The Race

The Kyle’s Krusade Virtual race is to benefit Kyle O’Connor, a 6 year old boy fighting cancer, and his family. Read Kyle’s story HERE.

Kyle’s Krusade Virtual 5K, 10K and Half Marathon is a race anyone, anywhere can participate in. You can walk, run, push a stroller, do it with a group or by yourself. The registration for this event is $10 a distance, you can sign up for one, two, or all three distances. 100% of your entry fee will go to The Talbert Family Foundation’s Kyle’s Krusade fund. In turn, to assist with the exorbitant costs associated with having a child with Cancer, they give 100% of their donations directly to the O’Connor family.

There are prizes for the runners which will be given out at random to participants — the more you race, the more chances to win! After all of the times have been entered and the race is over, the prizes will be selected by Random.org. All you need to do is run your race between February 1 and February 16, 2013. When you have completed your run, enter your time in the race spread sheet and that will make you eligible to win any of these prizes donated by our sponsors….

How to Sign Up

Signing up for the race is the easy…

Running the Race

The Kyle’s Krusade Virtual Race can be done any time between February 1st and February 16th 2013.
