About This Activity

Our Heywood Healthy Harvest 5K Run/Walk for Mental Health is on Saturday, October 23, 2021 in a Hybrid Format of on-site or virtual participation. Participants may choose to run or walk either in-person or on their own as a virtual participant.

  • Virtual participants can choose their own start time (between 6AM - 6PM) to officially complete the 5k.
  • In-person participants may chose either the competitive (timed) or non-competitive options and will join us at Heywood Hospital to run/walk our official HH5K route.
  • All participants are strongly encouraged to adhere to CDC and DPH Covid-19 guidelines within either format.

NEW THIS YEAR we are offering a unique Kick-off Ceremony in partnership with our 9th Annual Ride Of Your Life motorcycle ride supporting suicide awareness. Our combined event will host a mental health fair, shared opening and kick-off ceremony, and the thrill of two events in one as we take off for our respective runs/rides! 

  • Registration will open around 7:30am
  • Kickoff Ceremony around 9:15am
  • Event "go!" following the ceremony
  • Usually, our timed runner awards/recognition is within the hour after the start of the run

Our established 3.1 mile family-friendly scenic course is the official HH5K option, starting and ending at Heywood Hospital.  However, virtual participants (non-competitive) can select any route they wish. 

Reduced adult rate: $25. 

Youth registration (will appear within the Runner or Walker link) offers reduced fees: Ages 7-18 yrs are $15 & children 6 and under are free!

  • Virtual participants are encouraged to submit participation photos by emailing them to communityrelations@heywood.org, Subject: HH5K.  
  • Those who submit a photo wearing any previous HH5k shirt will be entered to win a prize!
  • Photos may be used on our Facebook page &/or on our website (by submitting photo you agree to this potential use).

All in-person runners and walkers will receive a Healthy Harvest 5K baseball hat upon registration check in. Everyone is encouraged to wear past HH5K shirts to show your past support!
