About This Activity

Our run is truly like no other in the region. You’ll experience Habitat for Humanity first-hand, running and walking by dozens of homes we’ve built or renovated and being cheered on by our enthusiastic Habitat homeowner families! You’ll travel on foot by active Habitat construction sites –including our new office complex on 14th Street.

The event takes place in the historic Boston-Thurmond neighborhood, beginning and ending at Kimberley Park Elementary School, where many of our homeowner families’ children attend. The certified, chip-timed 5K course provides an awesome view of the downtown skyline, and our t-shirts are the snazziest you’ll see anywhere! Our prizes for the top finishers overall, and in each age group, are one-of-a-kind, crafted from either construction materials or reclaimed objects from the Habitat ReStore.

Proceeds from the race benefit Habitat for Humanity’s mission of helping local working families purchase their own affordable, high-quality, energy-efficient homes.

We encourage runners, walkers, strollers and (well-behaved and leashed) four-legged participants. This year we are offering the chance to participate both individually and as a team.

*** If you are creating a team or joining an existing team, you will be given the opportunity to indicate that during the registration process ***

Bring your friends and family members out to participate in this one-of-a-kind event! One-mile option available as well.
