This weekend, even gladiators will be slurping Popsicles.

This year’s Plum Creek Popsicle Run comes with optional Camp Gladiator Functional Challenges. Participants in the 4-mile race on July 4 can choose to tackle the six physical challenges built into the course, or just walk or run the distance. Either way they’ll get frozen treats at the finish line.

Rather not run that far? A 3K and 1K option are also offered.

All three races start and finish at Negley Elementary, 5940 McNaughton, in the Plum Creek neighborhood of Kyle.

Check-in opens at 6 a.m. The 4-miler begins at 7 a.m.; the 3K and 1K start at 8:30 a.m. Entry fee is $15 for the 1K or 3K; $25 for the 4-miler ($15 for 18 and under.)
