This event is the kick-off for the PIper Community Festival. It is a road race that starts at Piper High School, goes around some neighborhoods, and finishes at the Piper CTE Building. While the course is not flat, it's a great opportunity to get in some work on hills and enjoy the beauty Piper has to offer! This year we have reversed the route so you get the hills in early, and finish on much flatter terrain.

The Piper Community Festival has been organized to bring the community together for a day full of festivities. It is a nod to the past “Piper Prairie Days” with new concepts. After participating in the kick-off 5K you can head on up to the high school for a pancake breakfast hosted by the Boy Scouts, then check out the Car Show. At 11:00 a carnival and vendor row will open up for the whole family's enjoyment. The day finishes off with a great game of family BINGO.
