Please join us for our Annual Mag 7 Fundraiser!! The Mag 7 Season Kick-off 5k!! Runners and walkers welcome!
As with last year, this will be an out and back course. We will start on the paved path (just across parking lot from splash pad), and head north. The turn around will be behind Highland Park Elementary, where we’ll also have a water station. This is at the 1.55 mile mark. There will also be police presence (Thanks Sheriff Brad Swain and crew!) along the course (on bikes/ATV), and volunteers at the railroad crossing and water station.
This event will be timed. In addition, 10 EXTRA PARTICIPATION POINTS will be earned just for signing up!! So why not SIGN UP!?!
We encourage TEAMS for this event. So come wearing your team shirt, participate, and the team with the MOST participants present on race day will be awarded the Traveling Trophy. In years past, Salt Creek Brewery (2015) and the C-Zone Fitness Studio (2016) had the most participants.
***Please NO PETS on the course as this race will be on the Karst Farm Park greenway paved path, which is narrow. And bringing pets to participate in the event is a safety concern, so please refrain. Thank you.
This event is our main fundraiser for the 2017 race season. Your registration is a Donation to this series, so thank you, thank you, thank you!! That being said, NO REFUNDS will be given.
