About This Activity

As a kick-off to National Chemistry Week, Henderson Community College Foundation and Henderson Community College (HCC) will be hosting its first ever Mole-A-Thon. This race distances left around the chemistry unit of measure, the mole. Differing from the furry creatures that dig up your yard, this mole allows scientist to count atoms by weighing them. A mole of an element is equal to its average mass, which is equal to 6.02 x 1023 atoms of that element. To celebrate, HCC will be offering a Half Mole (3.01km) and Full Mole (6.02km) option at our scenic campus. Strollers and wheel chairs welcome on this fully paved, no steps course. Please, no pets.

Race entry is $23 for non-students and
$10 for college, elementary, and secondary students. Use discount code (HCCSTUDENT)

Registration includes a t-shirt.  Register before 10-14 to guarantee your size.

All races will start at 2:15.

Registration will open at 1:30pm at HCC on campus near the Admin Building.

Mole-mentos and Mole-dallions to the top Male and Female finishers in both the full and half.
