St. John Paul II Catholic School Annual Mardi Gras Miles -Virtual 5K Fun Run

Due to COVID restrictions the 5K fun run wall be a virtual event that allows participants to run on their own on a 5K location of their choice. The fun run may be completed anytime from February 6th through February 16th. We ask that if you plan to compete for the top male  and female spot that you complete your run before 12pm on the 16th. This will enable results to be announced via this website and Facebook. The winners must pick up their 1st place King Cake at G. Charles Bakery located at 1319 N. Sandhills Blvd before 5pm.  at 2pm. The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and ability levels.

The Kids Run for the Beads will not be open to the public this year due to COVID and will be done on campus. It is open to kids 4-10 years of age. The runners will receive a string of beads for each lap that they complete during the time allotted.

Runners are encouraged to show off your inner “King Rex” or Mardi Gras joker. A King Cake will be awarded to the best costume and can be picked up at G. Charles Bakery in Aberdeen.

We hope to continue to encourage health and fitness among children, families and the entire community with our events and others like it throughout the year. Proceeds will go to St. John Paul II Catholic School to benefit its athletic and physical education programs. The goal of both of these programs is to establish and improve healthy lifestyles of our students and families.
