Reading is Fun-5K Run/Walk


District 279 Foundation -
District 279 Foundation Fun Run 20

Celebrations will look a little different this year, but we can still recognize that Reading is Fun virtually with our friends and family!

District 279 Foundation partners with Kidstop (ISD 279 school-aged care program) to coordinate this healthy and social opportunity to advocate that reading is fun! Funds raised from this family friendly event will be allocated to media centers (libraries) in ISD 279 – Osseo Area Schools to purchase learning resources. Celebrate reading by creating a virtual team of your friends and family to join in on the running fun!

Date and Time: The 10th annual Reading is Fun 5K will be a virtual event. Stay healthy and support media centers in Osseo Area Schools by running or walking your preferred route between August 1 – 12.

Event Location: Anywhere, this is a virtual event. You can build your own unique race day experience right at home. Run your own route whenever convenient for you and wherever you want! Be sure to practice safe social distancing while you are at it.

Submit Results: The race results will be unofficial, but report your 5K run time to us at (foundation@district279.org) by August 15, we will add your post to the list on our website. No winners will be declared. This is just to celebrate that Reading is Fun!


Virtual Cheers: We encourage you to cheer on your fellow runners, take photos of yourself and companions running your event and post them on social media. Tag “D279F” and use the hashtag #ReadingIsFun5K.

The Gear: We will make shirts and finisher medals available (similar to a packet pick-up) at a date and location to be determined for paid participants. Further directions and dates will be sent to those that register for the virtual event once more specific info becomes available.
