WHAT IS THE RUN4HOME?
The Run4Home 5K & Kid's Fun Run is usually held at Armco Park on July 4th and supports the programs of the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Warren County. There is no denying the time of uncertainty we are in, but we believe in adapting and serving all of the children and families who are homeless in our program in these challenging times. We are adapting to current events and going virtual! Interested parties can register as a participant and will create a page to seek support from their friends, family, and coworkers to fundraise while still practicing social distancing.
VIRTUAL 5K? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
On July 4th, Independence Day, we are asking you to challenge yourself to run or walk a 5k. This will not take place at one specific location - it will take place wherever you are and where you like to walk or run. This is your personal challenge and can be completed anywhere and anytime. Whether you hit the treadmill or take a stroll around your neighborhood, make sure to tag us on Facebook at
@InterfaithHospitalityNetworkofWarrenCounty and use #Run4Home
WHAT IS THE REGISTRATION FEE?
Medalist: Anything over $50.00
An entry fee in the amount of your choosing over $50 will get you a chance at a finish on the medal ceremony podium. We'll play the national anthem and you'll receive a medal that friends will consider priceless. You can't wear a virtual medal, but you can still wear your t-shirt proudly knowing you're a winner.
Olympic Hopeful: $50.00
For a $50 entry fee you’ll probably set a new personal best. You will also finish ahead of those high school stars who always finish about a mile ahead of everyone else. The T-shirt will give you bragging rights for a year.
For a $35 entry fee you’ll finish in the second wave of runners, and if we were really running you’d get all of the good snacks before most of the others even finished! And your T-shirt will commemorate your strong finish.
In Training: $25.00
A $25 entry fee puts you nicely into the pack, well ahead of all the walkers, and you’ll have a great T-shirt to show for your effort.
Sleep in: $15.00
A $15 entry fee gets you across the finish line in the final wave. You may even decide to sleep in and you’ll still get a respectable finishing time plus a free event shirt!
Kids Fun Run ages 12 and under: $10.00
At IHN, we are a family shelter that focuses on our children. A $10 entry fee gets your child entered in the Kid’s Race and a free Youth T-shirt to match the family. Bring on those family photos!
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH MY REGISTRATION FEE?
For registered participants
A t-shirt if ordered

All kids will receive a medal and a t-shirt
WHAT IS THE KIDS FUN RUN? HOW DOES THAT WORK?
The Kids Fun Run is for children under age 12 who want to be part of the fun without completing a 5k. The Fun Run can be anything the child wants it to be - sprinting from one point to another, chasing their pet around the yard, completing an obstacle course they design - the sky is the limit! We encourage kids to use their imagination, and we encourage parents, grandparents, or guardians to take a video and send it to us!
