The Hornet Hustle was founded in 2009 by the Abilene Elementary PTO to replace traditional sales fundraisers. It’s a fun event for the students while also encouraging physical activity and competition. Hornet Hustle is completely organized by volunteers and 100% of the proceeds go back to the school. This is a competitive race with top finisher awards for children 10 and under, ages 11-18, and 19 and older. There is a male and female category for each age division. This year we will be adding a senior awards division for runners who are over 60 years old. Because our race is on a cross country course, we’re offering a special discount for cross country participants to run without receiving an event shirt. For more information please contact our event coordinators.
All participants that register on or before August 16th are guaranteed to receive an event t-shirt. Participants that register after September 1st will receive event t-shirts on a first come-first serve basis. The first 200 participants that register will receive a Hornet Hustle headband.
