Join us at 9am on Saturday, September 30th on the iconic Newstead 5K course, starting at the South Mountain Annex and running through the beautiful Newstead neighborhood!!! 

Participants will receive a race T-shirt (while supplies last).

Create a team and challenge your neighbors, school communities, running group, or family members to see who can raise the most for the Achieve Foundation. New this year, anyone who raises $100 for the Achieve Foundation will receive a refund on their race registration!

The Newstead 5K prides itself on being a family-friendly event. Strollers are welcome but no pets please.  There will also be two events exclusively for the kids. Shortly after the completion of the 5K, we will have a "Toddler Dash" on the lawn near the Annex perfect for kids ages 4 and under. After the completion of the dash, the 1/2 mile Kid's Fun Run will commence on the closed road in front of the Annex. 

If you can't be there in person, we are keeping  a virtual option for participants who would like to run/walk any course on their own schedule over the weekend of September 29th-30th.
