About This Activity

The 5K that local runners in the YMCA race series are calling the fun hybrid trail and road race!

Saturday October 8th 9AM start time. This run will start in front of First Baptist Church at 23 N Central Ave in Belmont and continue North to Woodrow Avenue and take a left to Rocky Branch Trail. It includes almost 2 miles of a marked trail run with a return to the finish line back at the starting point.  Trail includes wooden bridges, hills and creek side runnning.

Dr. Dannie Benjamin was a local area dentist whose mission work in Romania and Honduras was a tremendous blessing to men, women and children that he helped. These individuals that he helped had virtually no access to dental services. Monies raised by this annual event will enable others to carry on his legacy.

We will be awarding medals to the top runners!  There will also be prizes handed out based on a bib number raffle.
