About This Activity


Bring the whole family and share the fun. It’s a 5K WALK/RUN Trail & Track Event supporting Health & Wellness and Cancer related illness related to obesity. There will be music, activities, hot chocolate, snacks, fruit and water. We are running two races, an Open 5K for walker/runners 14 years and older and Youth 1600m Fun Run for youngsters between the ages 5 of 13. All children will receive acknowledgement of participation. On-site registration begins at 8:00 a.m. All racers are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their race time.

We're asking everyone to bring 3 non-perishable items for the food drive. The school of youngsters that brings the most food will receive a trophy for their school. Also, the school with the most students participating in the race will also receive a trophy for their school. Let's do this, let’s make a difference!

Join the festivities immediately following the closing of the race at the Iron Bowl Event Center located at 1568 Indian Trail (across the street from the track).
