About This Activity

Join us Saturday, September 24th for the 4th  Annual "Triple H 5K" charity fun run/walk!

Triple H- Hills, Healing and Hope 5K Run is a fun family event open to the public with a USATF Certified Course, a timed event and is P.A.C.E. approved. Triple H 5K is put on by Grace Cottage, a faith-based residential group home for young pregnant women. Grace Cottage is a 501 (c) 3 tax exempt organization founded in 2002. Learn more at

All the proceeds from this race go directly to fund the Cottage, and it is our mission to provide a safe, nurturing environment to young women who are in crisis; providing parenting classes, while encourage education and hope. Grace Cottage provides housing for young pregnant women age 12-18 years of age and also services, support and supplies to our community of pregnant teens who are not residents

All participants will receive a commemorative Sport tech t-shirt (must register by September 1st to guarantee), hospitality before, during and after the race, and enjoy the festive post race party with music and door prizes while the awards are given out. Get creative! The team or individual with the best t-shirt/costume will win a special prize. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each age division, to the top team that finishes will get an award, and the first finisher pushing a stroller across the finish line will get a medal.

Single Registration—$25 per racer, Teams of 6 or more $20 per team member

Registration the day of the race starts at 8:00 am, Costume Contest participants meet at the stage at 8:30, Race starts at 9:00 am

Early packet pick-up will be Friday, September 23rd from 3-6pm at The Coffee Cup located at 401 N Broadway in Poteau

HILLS: As you walk/run this course you will work hard to race up and down “hospital hill.” The young women at Grace Cottage are climbing an uphill battle as well; working hard at school, learning parenting skills, lifeskills, etc. Each will encounter bumps and struggles, but enduring hard times leads to victory.
HEALING: After this walk/run your body will need a time of rest and healing. Our girls also need a time of healing. Some have to overcome struggles of their past, poor decisions or bad circumstances. Healing takes time.
HOPE: Hope that your next 5K walk/run will be easier on your body since you have made through this course. It is our mission to give the young women at Grace Cottage hope for a future through nurturing them and their babies.
Commit to run the race with us and to provide a nurturing home for these young women and their children. Grace Cottage has served over 100 young women and their children, several hundred more have been served by offering services. Grace Place will offer a continuum of care for these young families.

Grace Cottage is located at 311 N. Witte, in Poteau, OK 74953. Mailing address: PO Box 5, Poteau,OK
