Event distance is not sanctioned by USATF.  Our events have a higher sanctioning body - GOD!  Our event distances are based on scripture.      

The St James Coffee Run guiding scripture is Philippians 3:14 - making the course an excellent 3.14 mile distance to run & PRAY!!!  

Coinciding the St James Coffee Run is the St James Coffee Walk based on the guiding scripture, James 1:4, making this a perfect distance to walk & PRAY!!!!


The Little Lambs Mad Dash is a playful obstacle course for kids to run through, jump over, crawl under, and giggle!  We send groups of similar aged kids through the course led by older "kids" in waves to ensure their safety!  Playful fun - faith in ACTION!
