Unlimited Play – Universally Accessible Playgrounds

Everything’s Better with Bacon!

This year’s event will feature both an in-person and virtual race options.

Come get your sweat on at Zachary’s Playground for a 1-Mile Fun Run or 5K in support of Unlimited Play. Or join us virtually for a 5K, 10K or Half Marathon! Your participation will help develop accessible playgrounds so that all children and their caregivers can enjoy the freedom of play, regardless of their abilities.

For the virtual run, you get to choose the race course and start time! Run around your neighborhood, a nearby park or your favorite Unlimited Play playground. All you have to do is complete your run or walk between Friday, June 11 and Monday, June 14. Then, upload your time to be recognized for this accomplishment with all of our virtual runners!
