The Soaring Kids Half-Marathon and Kids Run for Kids fun run has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 23 beginning at Conway Sports Center at the Don Owen Complex.

Runners, aged 3-13, are invited to participate in the event by setting themselves the goal of running 12 miles before the event at the sports center.

The Kids Run for Kids is organized in conjunction with the Soaring Wings Half Marathon and Soaring Kids Half-Marathon, which benefit the Soaring Wings Ranch.

Any children who want to run at the sports center event may do so for free, but to be recognized as having completed the Soaring Kids Half Marathon and receive a T-shirt and finishing medal, children must register at a cost of $15 and provide documentation that they set and followed a plan to run the 12 miles.
