About This Activity

The 4th Annual RACERS Superhero 5K is proud to support our local community, with every dollar raised staying right here in the Twin Cities! Proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton Harbor. Now, more than ever, the Clubs need the support of our community to continue to meet the demand to provide a safe place for our youth to learn and grow.

This year's event will celebrate and recognize those DEPENDABLE Everyday Superheros that protect and serve us each day...whether it be armed forces defending our country, or our public safety personnel. After all.... SUPERHEROES DON'T ALWAYS WEAR A CAPE!

Public Safety Personnel and Active Military are eligible for a $5 discount on registration
