The Clover 5K - Franklin County 4-H - VIRTUAL RUN

Sat September 26 - Sat October 10 Hilliard, OH 43026 US Directions
4-H Clover 5K Run/Walk is now a Virtual event

Due to the continuing health situation, the 2020 4-H Clover 5K run/walk has been changed to a Virtual race event.  Instead of coming together in a big group setting, you will run or walk at home, in your neighborhood, a park, etc. during a two week time period and still compete for an award!  Everyone participating in the Virtual 5K will receive a race t-shirt and a "Woodal" race medal. 

We hope you join us in the Virtual 4-H Clover 5K race!

Hilliard, OH US 43026
Due to the continuing health situation, the 2020 Clover 5K will be held as a VIRTUAL event. This means you get to choose your own place to walk or run from September 26-October 10!  So sign up with your friends and family, grab a timing device and have a fun time running/walking for a purpose by supporting the Franklin County 4-H programs as well as over 15 area non-profit organizations!  We will miss hosting the in-person Clover 5K and celebrating with you at the Franklin County Fairgrounds but look forward to being able to be together in person next year for the exciting return of the Clover 5K.


One of the pillars of 4-H is, "Health, to better living,". The Clover 5K- Virtual is a run/walk with a purpose. All funds help to support the Walk & Serve (Park & Serve for 2020), a Central Ohio community service event that benefits local nonprofits and the populations they serve. We have transformed our Walk & Serve into a "Park & Serve" this year in which some of our 4-H clubs have prepared service projects that can be completed as a family unit on the evenings of September 24-26 while maintaining social distancing recommendations.  Click here to read more:
