Due to inclement weather, the Faster Than A Pastor 5K and Kids Fun Run has been rescheduled for this Sunday! Kids Fun Run will begin at 3:00pm and the 5K will begin at 3:30pm!


The safety and well-being of our participates and volunteers are our primary concern. This race is FOR kids and we have many kids signed up to run the Kids Fun Run. With a 70% chance of rain forecasted during our race time, we know many families will not feel comfortable bringing their littles out to run in the rain. We also care about the well-being of all of our volunteers who would potentially be out in the rain. So – lets have fun on Sunday!  Sunday’s weather forecast is gorgeous!


If your family had prior commitments on Saturday that kept you from registering for the race on Saturday and you would like to register now that the date has been moved to Sunday, we would love to honor the $20 registration price. You may register by filling out a paper registration form on Sunday morning or Sunday afternoon.


Thank you for your flexibility!

Lake Arlington Baptist Church has about 1000 children and students who participate in our Summer Camps, Mission Trips, and Upward Sports each year. We use sports and fun as a vehicle to encourage character growth and life change in students—Kindergarten-Graduating Seniors. The Faster than a Pastor Fun Run is an opportunity for children and students at LABC to engage people in the community to be a part of this life change. Each year, thousands of dollars are given in scholarships so that every student who has the desire to attend can do so without financial limitation. We would love for this number to grow so that more students in our community have that same opportunity.



The Faster than a Pastor (FTAP) 5K & Fun Run is an exciting event benefiting LABC’s Children’s & Youth which enables kids to participate in our camps, retreats and annual sports leagues. The money we raise through race sponsorship and participation will promote life-changing experiences. All proceeds from the FTAP will be used for individual scholarships as well as underwrite registration needs, allowing everyone to benefit from your generosity. LABC is a religious organization.
