Join us on Saturday, May 16, 2015 in the beautiful Riverside/Downtown Jacksonville area for the Hart Down Under 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run. This race is in its 1st year and is a fundraiser for Jacksonville high school senior Drew Hart as he heads on the trip of a lifetime this summer to Australia with Down Under Sports.
Drew will be participating in this international event to represent Florida on the East Conference Track and Field Team during the summer of 2015. Proceeds from this race will go towards the cost of competing Down Under. In addition to the race there are fabulous post-race activities for the whole family described in more detail below.
A Message from Drew
As an athlete I have been invited to participate in the Down Under Sports Tournaments hosted on the Gold Coast of Australia. I am honored to be an ambassador of not only my community and state, but also our country. I will be participating in this international event on the East Conference Track and Field Team during the summer of 2015. Proceeds from this race will go towards the cost of competing Down Under.
IF YOU DON’T RUN, PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION. A major source of funds comes through voluntary contributions of community and business sponsors. Your sponsorship will be a very important part of fundraising for me and my team. This donation will help us fulfill this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The race will be chip timed using a shoe chip system. Chips will be distributed at the packet pickup. All runners must cross the mat at the finish line with their chip properly attached to their shoe to score in the race. Chips must be returned at the conclusion of the race at the finish line. Runners not returning chips will be charged a fee of $30.
