Join us for the 6th Annual HYP 5 Miler for 5 Charities! The 5 Miler will kick off on City Island and feature a safe and scenic course running along Riverfront Park (Capital Area Greenbelt) and ending back at City Island. In addition to the 5 Miler Race, we are bringing back the Kids Fun Run! The Kids Fun Run will be a 1/4 mile and all registrations will be “day of.” There will be no entry fee, but donations are welcome.
New this year to the HYP 5-Miler for 5 Charities is the Team Relay! Teams consist of two to three people together and receive a single finish time. Each person will get a bib on the team – each person on the team will run their leg and pass the baton to their partner and the next person will start running. No matter how many people finish the race, the time will be whoever crosses the finish line. We are not able to supply split times for each runner. Awards go to the first, second, and third place teams.
5 Charities include:
HYP Outreach Initiatives
Downtown Daily Bread
LGBT Community Center of Central PA
Young Professionals of Color Greater Harrisburg
Pre-registered participants will receive short sleeve shirts. The registration deadline for shirts is 9/13/19. “Day-of” registered 5 Mile participants are not guaranteed a shirt, only if extras are available.
Following the event, stick around at the Carousel Pavilion for music, food, and beer!
