!RUN AGAINST SLAVERY TIME CHANGE!
The registration and start time for the Run Against Slavery has changed to 7:30am and 8am, respectively, at the request of the K-State Police. This change is to avoid participants from having to run through any crowds of people walking to the football game, which was recently moved to 11am. We are extremely sorry for this change and hope it does not inconvenience you. If you have any questions, please email Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently informing people through Facebook, email, this website and changing the current flyers. If you could further help us by informing your family and friends, that would be much appreciated. Again we are so sorry for any inconvenience.

The 3rd annual Run Against Slavery will be on Sat. September 27, 2014 and is a walk/run to help bring awareness of the issue of human trafficking and raise funds for non-profit organizations involved in rescue and restoration of victims. It will be held at Bosco Plaza on the K-State campus in Manhattan, KS.
Registration/check-in starts at 7:30am with the walk/run starting at 8am. There will be both a 5K and a 1 mile route and prizes for the top male and female runners of each distance. Both routes will start at Bosco Plaza just north of the K-State Student Union in Manhattan. The event will be held in rain or shine. Bringing awareness signs on the walk is welcomed. This is not a closed course. Please take caution if you are going to push a stroller, run with a dog or listen to music.
This year we will be marking the course with flags instead of chalk to prevent the same confusion that occurred last year. To those whose race time was affected by this confusion last year, we again sincerely apologize.
The registration fee is only $10, all of which will be donated to a local anti-human trafficking non-profit organization. Shirts are $15 per shirt and there will also be a raffle. For online registration, fill out the registration form to the right. Online paying is now available (bottom right).
