Welcome to the Friends of Vineyard Haven Public Library's 26th annual 5k Run/Walk to benefit the library! This year will be a "hybrid" event, with both in-person and virtual options.

The traditional 5k event will be held in-person at the library on Sunday, September 24th, 2023 at 10am, rain or shine. A free half-mile fun run for kids will be held at 9:45 am. The 5K course for this race begins next to the library on Greenwood Avenue, turning left onto Main Street and proceeding up Main Street to the West Chop Lighthouse, then returning down Main Street to the library. Registration for the in-person 5k is $30 and includes a t-shirt. 

For those who prefer to run the race on their own time, register today, and run or walk a 5k anytime between August 1st, 2023 and September 30th, 2023. Virtual participants can run or walk any 5k course of their choosing.  Suggested donation of $25 for the "virtual option will help the Friends continue to support library programs and services in the coming year.

All registered participants, both in-person and virtual, will be entered into a raffle drawing!

Thank you to our event sponsors: Cronig's Market & Healthy Additions, Cape Cod 5, MV Savings Bank, Donnelly & Co, Miller Sederholm Law Office, The Green Room, Vineyard Grocer, and Island Source!
