Join us for the return of the in-person 4-H Clover 5K at the Franklin County Fairgrounds in Hilliard, Ohio. All funds raised by the 5K run/walk helps to support the 4-H Walk & Serve. Whether you choose to run in person or as a virtual 5K, you can be a part of our run/walk for a purpose by supporting the Franklin County 4-H programs as well as over 10 area non-profit organizations!
At this time, very similar to where we were a year ago, it is uncertain what the health and safety concerns related to COVID might be in April 2022. However, we will be planning the in-person 5K in addition to offering a Virtual option, with the safety of our participants and volunteers in mind. We will continue to monitor the CDC recommendations and state and local guidelines to ensure the event is safe.
Early registration allows time to order the correct number of shirts for all participants. We can only guarantee availability of shirts for those participants who have registered by March 13, 2022. If registering for the race on March 14th or later, no race t-shirt option will be offered due to the ongoing global supply chain issue.
The 5K run starts and finishes on the track. This is a flat course with the section of packed crushed stone and paved roads all within the Fairgrounds property.
