5K Details

The Run Hard race is a 5k (3.1 mile) race that is free to all Run Hard club members and a running sponsor. For Run Hard participants, the race will be officially timed, so you can be sure your time will be accurate. Location TBA.


Participants earn rewards along the way. For example, when runners accomplish 1.5 miles they have earned their Run Hard t-shirt. Our goal is to reward participants for working hard to achieve a goal. Upon completion of the program, each participant will have earned a water bottle, dri-fit moisture wicking shirt and finisher medal.
