The Hoggard Band 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is the only event of its kind in this area. Enjoy a morning of music, family, fun and fitness at Hugh McRae park. Band members will be playing motivating music for runners and walkers along the course. Take a casual stroll through the park as you listen to band members playing along the course. If you want more of a challenge give the 5K run a try as band members keep you motivated with their music and cheers. With azaleas blooming and music from our talented band students, our 5K and Fun Run is sure to please everyone from casual strollers to avid runners.
The goal of the Band on the Run 5K and Fun Run, is to promote awareness of the importance of music education in all schools and to support the band program at John T. Hoggard High School. The Hoggard band program includes marching band (including color guard), concert and symphonic bands, and jazz band.
