10K added to KB Tough Run


OREGON — The 7th Annual KB Tough Run will be held on Saturday, June 23, at White Pines Ranch in Oregon. New to this year’s fundraising event is a 10K Race. 

Both the KB Tough run and the new 10K are off road trail run through the pastures, canyon and wooded areas of the ranch. The kid sprint, a special race for our youngest Tough Runners age nine and under with age appropriate obstacles will start the morning’s running and the popular one mile trail hike will continue to be offered.

Registration for the event has started. Online registration and printable mail in forms are available at www.KBToughRun.com. If you’d like forms mailed to you, please contact KB Tough Run by email to info@KBToughRun.com or by phone to Josh 815-677-0115. Early registration to the event includes a t-shirt, drink token and professionally timed race bib. Early registration closes on Wednesday, June 6. Event day registrations are welcomed for those who miss the early registration deadline. Event day registrations will not receive an event t-shirt but will still receive a drink token and timed bib. 

In addition to the runs and hike, the fundraising event will include pork chop sandwich lunches by the Ogle County Pork Producers starting at 11 a.m., craft beer by Prairie Street Brewing Company, raffles, horsey bingo, prize wheel and a kid zone game area. 

The KB Tough Run is the major fundraising event for The KB Fund. The fund has been established to help those in the community that are burdened by a medical crisis. More than 40 households have been recipients of a gift from the KB Fund. Their needs have stemmed from cancer diagnosis, life threatening burns, premature birth, auto accidents, surgery and many other issues that present unexpected expenses health insurance, if they have it, does not pay for.
