On June 17th, 2023, kwELITE in Columbus will be co-hosting the Rock ‘n’ Run race series in Columbus, Nebraska at Parkway Plaza (4471 41st Ave. Columbus, NE) Exact start and stop locations to be announced.
This year’s event is exciting for several reasons, this race is put on by a national organization which typically allows for one race location per state…and they were gracious enough to be persuaded to add Columbus this year! The race also coincides with ACC Entertainment & Shenanigan’s “Bash on the Track”, hosted the same day. Attendees of the race will receive a half price ticket to the concert taking place that evening, along with a drink ticket!! Word on the street is there will be several great headliners, to be announced!
kwELITE CEO/Broker, Renee Mueller is excited about this opportunity and said, “hosting both events on the same day will draw more support for both events and provide an opportunity for visitors to explore the Columbus area recreational trails and eateries in the Columbus area! Later in the evening we will all enjoy some live entertainment, medal ceremonies great food, and lots of fun, the day promises to be one of excitement!”
The race offers both 5k and 10k options, both timed, starting at 9am. Online registration links will be available soon, but in the meantime, spread the word to your running buddies! All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation (SSF), a local organization in Columbus that is dedicated to raising awareness and funding life-saving research for ALL types of childhood cancer. Over the past 10 years, SSF has donated more than $1.5 million to childhood cancer research throughout the United States.
Each ticket sale includes entrance to the race, a half-price concert ticket, drink tickets, and bagels after the run! To promote the event and bring visitors to the community, kwELITE has received a promotion grant from the Columbus Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
