About This Activity

Harrisburg YMCA, Harrisburg Parks & Recreation and the Southwest Cabarrus Rotary are partnering to present the 12th Annual Harrisburg 5K! The goal of this joint effort is to promote recreation and local business in Harrisburg.

The 5K will have Waves beginning at 6:30 am with starts every 15 minutes.  Waves will be limited to 40 participants.  When you register for the 5K, you will be asked your preferred start time and your fastest 5K time.

Note:  8:45 am and 9 am start times will be for runners only (no walkers).

Virtual Awards will start immediately after the race.

NEW LOCATION AND NEW COURSE for 2021.   The Harrisburg 5K is a 3.1-mile course that takes you through the neighborhood and around the new Harrisburg Park at 191 Sims Parkway, Harrisburg, NC  28075.

  1. All workers will be wearing masks, have a temperature check, and social distancing.
  2. Runners are only allowed to be there 15 minutes before their staggered start time.  At the start line, we are asking all runners to wear a mask.
  3. Social Distancing, Health Questionnaire, PPE will be used, and sanitary stations will be around for usage.

The Rotary Club of Southwest Cabarrus was the last rotary club founded in the
20th Century. Founded in December 1999, we are a continuously growing club of
approximately 20 members. The motto of Rotary International, a service organization
of over 1.2 million men and women worldwide is, “Service Above Self.” That is
our purpose globally and locally. The Southwest Cabarrus Rotary Club, which
meets each Tuesday at 11:45am at the Rocky River Golf Club, is dedicated to
serving needs such as Polio eradication, local youth development, global microloans,
and supporting Alzheimer’s research, among other causes. Our net proceeds
raised from the Harrisburg 5K events will directly support these needs.

The Cannon Memorial YMCA is a tax exempt, not-for-profit organization that
has served all of Cabarrus County and part of Rowan County since 1908. In December
2006, the Harrisburg Family YMCA joined the Cannon Memorial YMCA association as
the third branch of our service area in Cabarrus County. A portion of your
registration fee will assist the YMCA in providing programs and memberships to
those who could not afford to participate otherwise. The Cannon Memorial YMCA
depends on the financial contributions from individuals and corporations to
continue improving the quality of life for children in our community. Every child
deserves the chance to experience quality after school care, camp, sports, swimming
and other skill and character building activities.
