JediOKC 5K Oct 12, 4 pm Wiley Post Park OKC

Post by Ryan » Tue Jul 02, 2019 3:22 pm

Join JediOKC, Oklahoma's Largest Star Wars Fan Club, ( JediOKC5K.com ) as they sponsor the first ever JediOKC 5K & Costume Fun Run benefiting the children of Integris Mental Health Center in Spencer OK.

Part of the Landrunners Race Series! www.JediOKC5K.com

Pick out your fanciest Jedi robe and your loosest Stormtrooper armor for the most entertaining 5K event on this side of the galaxy. With a timed 5K and a children's 1 mile fun run, you and your family will not want to miss the fastest event since you-know-who did the you-know-what run in under twelve you-know-what's.

Food trucks, inflatables and family fun! The costumed members of JediOKC will be present for photos and meet & greet before, during and after the race. For Runners, costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Pre-Registation reserves your spot in the this 300 adult runner limited event (children's event has no limit). Pre-reg includes t-shirt and special inaugural JediOKC 5K finisher medal. We anticipate that registration will open through OK Runner, our event's official timers.

Sponsored by JediOKC, McKinley Design Studio and More! (Interested in sponsoring this event? Please contact Latonya McHale at jediokc5k@gmail.com to find out how your organization can help us bless the lives of the children at Integris Mental Health.)

Wouldn't miss it for the world! Count me in for Rey! Set up, tear down, the works!

Edit: As I've volunteered to run registration, I will be there but not in costume! Frees up Rey to anyone else who wants to scavenge!

For sure doing this! I am registered to run but will be available to volunteer before and after where needed. I will be costuming in a version of my Han Solo tailored to running.

This is such an awesome idea!! I’ll Jyn Erso for this for pictures. I’ll also be available for tear-down, etc. at the end.

I registered for the 5k but questionable if I'll actually be able to make it since I have a final the following Friday and I am infamous for not studying ahead of time. If I can make it, I'll run as Rey and be available for pics before and after.
