About This Activity

Come celebrate the positive attitude and dedication of 84-year-old Marvin Hachmeister, still a dominant fixture at races throughout the Manhattan region. Marvin is well known for his early March "Birthday Run" -- one lap around a 200-meter indoor track for every year lived. This past year, Marvin completed the equivalent of 10.5 miles on his annual run. All proceeds from this race will go toward establishing the Manhattan Cross Country Club Running Scholarship in honor of Marvin Hachmeister, which was awarded for the first time in Spring, 2015. We hope to be able to offer several scholarships to area kids who want to run competitively in college!

In addition to the 5K run/walk, we will offer a 1/2 mile Fun Run for kids of all ages. The Fun Run costs $5 but does not include a t-shirt. You can purchase a t-shirt for an additional $5.
