Run the Crazy K this weekend

Run the Crazy K this weekend

If you’ve been thinking about racing the Car-X Crazy K this weekend, it’s not too late to join a team or sign up on your own to run through a mud pit, climb a hay stack, crawl through a tunnel and negotiate a sea of tires.

The 5K race with obstacles throughout is an all-day event on Saturday at the Champaign County Fairgrounds. The proceeds from the race go to eight local charities, and the event includes live music, food and drinks.

Car-X owner and race organizer Parham Parastaran said he expects to have close to 1,000 runners, and 80 percent of them are on a team.

Online registration for the race closes Friday, but you can sign up in person at the fairgrounds until 2 p.m. Saturday.
