The Fifth Annual Whitehills 5K Run/Walk Race will be held Saturday, August 24, 2019. The course is measured and chip-timed. There is also a free half-mile Kids Fun Run. Race proceeds will go toward needs identified by Whitehills Elementary School, which serves a diverse population. About one-third of Whitehills students receive free and reduced lunch; race profits allow the Whitehills School Association to serve the needs of our entire student population. Come and enjoy the beautiful tree lined streets through the Whitehills neighborhood and enjoy refreshments after the race. All ages and abilities welcome! 

Construction Notice

In June 2019, the current Whitehills Elementary building will be demolished, clearing the way for a brand-new building to be constructed in 2019-20. During this transitional year, the Whitehills students and staff will move together to a different building. The race committee will be working closely with school and public officials to determine the safest course for our race participants, and will make course and other logistical information available as we have it.
