We invite you take part in the 14th Annual LifeSkills Run for Autism!  Due to this unprecedented time we have decided this event will be virtual for the safety of our participants. This event will include something for everyone: a 4 Mile Run, a 1 Mile Kid's Run, and a 1 Mile Fun Walk.  

Participants may complete the events any time between April 5 and April 30. You may choose to use the original race route or use a route of your own. For this virtual 4 mile event, participants can choose to RUN, WALK, or BIKE the 4 miles. At the completion of the event, we encourage you to take a photo and add it to the event Facebook page (LifeSkills Run/Walk for Autism) with the hashtag #runwalkbike4asd.  You can register by clicking on the Eventbrite link.

The Early Bird Registration fee of $25.00 will end on Friday, March 12. Beginning Saturday, March 13th, both the 4 Mile event and the 1 Mile Fun Walk Registrations will increase to $30.00.

*Teams of 5 or more can use the code TEAM5 for $5.00 off registration. (To enter the discount code, click on "Enter Promotional Code" on the top right corner of the Tickets screen. Continue your ticket purchase from there.)

NEW THIS YEAR - Teams can be created and named on the Eventbrite registration site. Passwords can be created and shared with team members and used to invite others to join teams. This can be especially helpful for large student groups, school teams, corporations, etc. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN STILL REGISTER SMALL GROUPS (AND USE THE TEAM5 DISCOUNT CODE) BY CHOOSING "INDIVIDUAL" TICKET PURCHASE. **Please note that a member of your team will need to establish the team. When you register as part of a team, you will need the TEAM NAME & PASSWORD. (See graphic below.)

**The first 400 participants to register will be guaranteed an event T-shirt and goody bag.**

** Children (12 & Under) WALK free with a paid adult, but registration must be completed in order to be eligible to receive a T-shirt and goody bag. The 1 Mile Kid's Fun Run is a separate registration.

**Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Registration packet (t-shirts and goody bag) pick-up information is still being finalized. Information will be updated here, on the event Facebook page, website, as well as emailed to individuals that have already registered at the time the announcement is made. There is an option to have your packet shipped to you this year - simply select Shipping as an add-on for an additional $10. We will begin shipping packets as they are available.
