MURFREESBORO, Tennessee -- The 11th Annual Special Kids Race will be hosted later this month on Saturday, March 19, 2022 - at the campus of presenting sponsor, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & Surgicenter (located next to Gateway Island, a local Murfreesboro park).
In the ten plus year history of this event, nearly 3,000 participants have gathered together to show their support... and organizers are planning for another great crowd to benefit the children and families served at Special Kids Therapy & Nursing Center, a local non-profit organization "serving Jesus Christ by caring for His children."
Returning participants from the 10th Annual Special Kids Race that was held in October of last year (2021) will see a familiar face at the starting line - the newest Special Kids Featured Child, Jovan Frazier! His family will be onsite to cheer on the crowd as they begin the race!
Special Kids is a Christian therapy and nursing center for children with special needs. The Murfreesboro, TN-based ministry started with one child in 1998 and has since grown to serve thousands of children across Middle Tennessee.

The support of event sponsors ensures the money collected through registration goes back to providing for local families served at the Special Kids campus. Supporters, including those taking part in the 11th Annual Special Kids Race, are also encouraged to continue their involvement leading up to the event by fundraising on their own or contributing to an existing fundraising team. Top earners, along with top finishers in each distance, will be honored following the conclusion of the 15K race.
Participants can sign up to run or walk in any of the available distances leading up to the day of the event. This includes the 15K, 10K, 5K, One-Mile "Fun Run", or you can be a "Virtual Runner" at-home.
Both the 15K and 10K distances will begin at 7 AM on March 19th, shortly followed by the 5K start at 7:15 AM and the One-Mile "Fun Run" 8:45 AM.
Like every Special Kids Race to date, the event will be held on the campus of Murfreesboro Medical Clinic & Surgicenter; participants will run or walk on a course that travels from Old Nashville Highway into the Stones River National Battlefield park.
