The Redbud Classic is next weekend on April 8.

There’s a 5K race, 10K race, and bike tours that range in length from 10 miles to 50 miles.

This is the 35th year for this race and it has raised over $500,000 for local non-profits.

Oklahoma Cleats for Kids will benefit from event proceeds this year.
