The sixth annual event will feature a Kids One Mile fun run at 9:30 a.m. which is followed by the open 5k at 10:00 a.m. The cost to participate is just $15 now through February 15th, at which point the cost will go up to $20; the cost of the Kids Run is just $5 and will remain so through race day. Registrants who wish to register the day of the race may do so at Highland Park School beginning at 8:15 a.m.
The first 100 registered runners receive a pair of Manchester Running Company socks; all runners are treated to a very scenic and challenging 5k course which winds through the Howard/Porter passive recreation area. Runners will also be treated to post-race refreshments, cash prizes are available to the overall winners and age group prizes will be presented following the 5k.
Parking and restrooms will once again be available inside Highland Park School and side streets are available for overflow parking. Automatic timing will once again be used so your results will be available shortly after the race.
