This race is designed to give each participant a great experience – whether you’re a hard core runner looking to pin on a medal, or simply a jogger/walker looking to enjoy a beautiful course with friends or family. This annual 5k is hosted by Heritage Christian Academy and is set alongside the HCA Fall Festival with fun activities for spectators and racers alike, such as soccer games, volleyball matches, inflatables, crafts, face painting, live Christian rock music, activities for the kids, food and fun! All paid participants will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 places in each age group.
