About This Event

Both the 5K and 1.5 mile races wind through Holland Heights and have their midpoint near the Abbey Court cul-de-sac which is a central location for the work of Heights of Hope. All proceeds from the race benefit Heights of Hope, a community development organization. It is also the culminating event for our Adventure League family fitness program. Both events are run/walks. The 5K is timed. Strollers are welcome.
