Join us for the eighth annual HEITZ OF HEAVEN 5K RUN/WALK that will be held at RMU Island Sports Center on Sunday, September 13, 2020, at 9:00am!   This year the race is limited to 50 participants, including volunteers, and will include a staggered start.

*** PLEASE NOTE*** THERE IS NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION AT ALL!  WITH PARTICIPATION LIMITS, WE EXPECT THIS TO SELL OUT, SO DON’T WAIT! Should the event be cancelled, the race will be converted to a VIRTUAL run (details to follow if necessary). There will be NO REFUNDS for this event, no exceptions. REGISTRATION CLOSES ON SEPTEMBER 1st!

This is a level course that is perfect for improving your PR if you are a runner or just strolling along the river front if you are a walker.  All proceeds benefit the Heitz 61 Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists young people within the community.  This is a super fun event for runners, walkers, and families.  Awards will be given to top three male and female overall.  

  • If you have a fever, cough, sore throat, or any other symptom of COVID-19 or other illness, please stay home. Contact the event director (heitz61foundation@verizon.net) if you have any questions. Complete CDC guidelines can be found HERE.  

  • Masks will NOT be required while running on the course, but having a mask or buff handy is highly recommended should you be passed by another runner or are passing another runner. Masks/face coverings will be required while you are waiting to start.

  • Please be sure to wash and sanitize your hands frequently. Sanitizer will be available in various areas around the venue.

  • We strongly encourage you to plan for your own hydration needs, especially on the course. There will NOT be water provided on the course. You will get one bottle of water at the finish line. 

  • Once you complete the race, please do not hang near the finish line. We want to make sure there is enough room for other runners to safely finish while being socially distant from others.
