Description

Camp Quality's 10th Annual 5k!! This year is our 10th 5k and we will be making this a big celebration. More to follow!

Last year we had a soft start (30 minute window) from 10-10:30 am to allow runners and walkers to space out. Not only was this nice for safety reasons, but it also helped some parents with both being able to run the same race with the kids present! We are always for helping everyone out and will be keeping this 30 minute soft start option permanently!  We will also be offering the virtual 5k all month long, as well as the 100 mile virtual challenge. We hope to see you again this year, in-person or virtually. 

Previously known as Camp Quality's Hero for a Day 5k. We had 7 amazing years of being Heroes for a Day, but we shifted our focus to the main reason we hold this race in 2020. September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month and spreading knowledge about the statistics, the funding, and the support these kids need is our priority. All our supporters and participants have been our heroes for the past 10 years now and we cannot wait to celebrate you and our amazing kids this September!

We will be displaying our memorial/tribute signs from past course years and any new ones that want to be purchased on our usual course of the Riverview trail and Flushing County park. Of course, you can also complete this virtual 5k on your treadmill or in your neighborhood. 

Race packets for virtual participants will be sent the first week in September. After the start of the race, packets will be sent out weekly. 

Group/Family pricing: Register 3 or more people at the same time and receive $3 off per person.
