About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Sherman Elementary PTO 5K is excited to announce some changes!  This year, in conjunction with the Sherman Area Chamber of Commerce, we will host the "Book it Back to School 5K" at Sherman Homecoming. The course is flat & fast and will culminate in a tour around the new Sherman walk/run path. Runners, walkers & strollers are welcome, and encouraged to dress up as your favorite Literary author or character!!

Registration prior to the event on is encouraged. Register by noon on Friday, August 14th to take advantage of the early bird pricing ($22) and to guarantee a race t-shirt. If you register after that time, cost will be $25.

There will be medals for top male & female competitors in 6 age categories, as well as prizes for the overall top 3 men & women racers.

After the race, your race bib grants you admission to the Sherman Homecoming on Saturday (rides & special events have separate costs).  Also, we hope you will stay to watch the Homecoming parade that morning, shortly after the race.

Event details and schedule

Race starts at 8:00 am on Saturday, August 29th.  Registration starts at 6:30am at the Sherman Homecoming site, between the Rail Golf Course & Business 55.  Racers are encouraged to be there by no later than 7:30, as there is a short walk between registration table & the starting line.

Don't forget to dress up as your favorite Literary character!
