About This Activity

Join us Saturday, March 5, 2016 as we Heat the Streets Run and Walk for Warmth!

What is it?

Heat the Streets Run is a professionally-timed 5K run starting at Midtown Crossing and winding through the historic Midtown and Field Club neighborhoods. (View the course map here.)

Walk for Warmth is an untimed, one-mile walk around Turner Park at Midtown Crossing.

Why do we do it?

Proceeds from the run and walk go to local energy assistance programs to help seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families pay their utility bills. The event is held in the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes.


Awards will be given to the overall top male and female 5K finishers, as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for male and female in each age division (12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+).

For the safety of all participants, no pets are allowed on the run or walk course. Strollers are accepted on the walk course only.
