Official Website


My Kid's Club's 45th Annual Selma Railroad Days 5K Run/ Walk is Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 8:30am! We're thrilled to host the event  this year in-person (we also have a virtual option for those who want to support from anywhere). This 5K road course is a flat and fast USATF certified course. At 8:45am we will host a 1/2 Mile Kids Caboose Run from the starting line just after the registered runners take off - no need to register for that.  After the Run/ Walk, stick around to enjoy the all-day Railroad Days Festival fun with food, entertainment and more. 

The MKC 5K Run/ Walk registration fee is $25 per person as an early bird deal until 9/8/21; $35 after 9/8/21. An awesome short-sleeve Railroad Run race t-shirt is included FREE with registration, but we can only guarantee a size for those registered before 9/15/21. All proceeds support My Kid's Club's daily operations.

All participants have the option to be timed with a race bib, but recreational non-timed participants are very welcome and will have a great time. Only timed participants will receive an official record of their finish time. DOGS ARE WELCOME - must be kept on a leash at all times.

Awards will be given to the top runners in age and gender categories. Categories are ages 6-13, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+. NOTE: Masks are required before and after the race. Masks may be removed during the race, but please observe social distancing rules if near others.

Shirt and race packet pickup will be held Friday, October 1 from 9:00am-2:00pm and 4:30pm-6:30pm in the parking lot behind Selma Elementary School (311 West Richardson Street). For group teams of more than 15 and school teams, t-shirts and packets will be delivered before the race. We are offering t-shirt shipping for out of town participants, but cannot guarantee those participants will receive their shirt before race weekend.

SEE RACE MAP HERE. Corporate Team, Group Team and Sponsorship options are encouraged and available. Please continue as a registrant for more information.

What is My Kid's Club? My Kid's Club (MKC) breaks down barriers faced by low-resource Johnston County youth in building skills for a successful future. In operation since 2006, we work with 150 students ages 6-16 in Selma and Smithfield who are living in challenging circumstances. It’s our goal to counteract the effects of poverty and lack of resources to improve student achievement and career readiness. We deliver daily afterschool and summer camp programming designed to teach the skills and attitudes our students need to grow academically and emotionally to succeed as adults.
