Hyco Memorial 5K VIRTUAL

Thu October 1 - Mon October 26 Directions
Hyco 5K goes 100% virtual!

After extensive research, contacting other local race and event coordinators, and careful consideration for our participants, volunteers, vendors and all involved in our annual fund raiser we have made a tough decision. The 5K, which typically kicks off on an October Saturday morning at the Anderson County Civic Center parking lot and ends in the same area, is now 100% virtual. With the almost daily fluctuation in numbers and the ups and downs of this pandemic as well as the state and local mandates changing constantly we felt it was best to make this decision now. The 5K course, that the race is typically run on in Anderson, is named The Hyco Memorial 5K, certified by the USATF. Registration for the 5K is $25 and will go up to a maximum registration fee of $35 during the month of October. All participants will receive a race t-shirt and our new reusable Hyco K-9 Fund bags.  5K finishers, which upload their time and route, are guaranteed a commemorative Hyco Memorial VIRTUAL 5K dog tag.  For those who want to sign up for the virtual Doggie Dash they will the shirt and bag as well as our annual Hyco doggie bandanna.

With the almost daily fluctuation in numbers and the ups and downs of this pandemic as well as the state and local mandates changing constantly, we felt it was best to make this decision now.

The 5K course, that the race is typically run on in Anderson, is named The Hyco Memorial 5K, certified by the USATF, and will still be open for those who chose to run on this course.  Registration for the 5K is $25 and will go up to a maximum registration fee of $35 during the month of October.

We will ship out all race swag AFTER the race is completed. Mailing will begin during the week following the race, please be patient as it may take some time to mail out ALL the registrants. If you live locally we will announce if we will have a pickup option closer to date of race. There is an option to pay the shipping fee for your items, though this is not required to get your items we would greatly appreciate your help with the costs incurred of shipping all these packages out.  

If you registered for any of the 5K options, we will gladly move your registration to the 5K Virtual. This allows you to still do the 5K that you registered for, but now you get to do it where you want, and you also get 24 days in which to do so! 

We would love for everyone to share the fun - so if you will post your pics and share with us that would great. Use the hashtags #Hyco5K #HycoDoggieDash and/or #HycoK9Virtual we will pick some of our faves to get some Hyco swag, FREE registrations for the 2021 race and other goodies.
