5th Annual SMART5.29K Run/Walk


The 5th annual SMART5.29K Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2019. The race start/finish takes place at the Appalachian Power Park (3rd base entrance on Smith Street). Check-In/Registration will begin at 8 a.m. A Kids Fun Run will take place at 8:45 a.m. for children 12 and under, and the 5.29K run/walk begins at 9 a.m. with the presentation of awards to follow.

Before, during and after the race, the partner organizations will have display tables, giveaways, and children’s activities to make this a true family friendly event in downtown Charleston. In advance of the race, families are invited to attend the packet pickup and ice cream social from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 17, 2019 at center court of the Capitol Market on Smith Street. 

The SMART5.29K raises money to establish SMART529 College Savings Plans for children recently adopted out of the foster care system in West Virginia. All proceeds from the 5.29K registration, minus a $3.00 race fee, will be deposited into SMART529 College Savings Accounts. The accounts will be awarded through a selection process administered by Frameworks and Mission West Virginia.
