Description

Get excited- We are back and LIVE this year!!! So put away those snow boots and get out those running shoes! The 9 1/2 Annual Fishcreek Raccoon Run will be held on Sunday, April 25th, 2021 and will consist of a 5K and 1-mile Fun Run centered through the neighborhoods of Fishcreek Elementary School. There will also be a virtual option for those who prefer to run virtually, or those who can not join us on the 25th- near and far!!

The Raccoon Run promotes the health and wellness of the district’s students and the community as a whole, while supporting the students of Fishcreek Elementary. While there may be changes to the event everyone knows and loves, the important piece it is LIVE, for the kids, and getting us all back to some normalcy while getting out and exercising! 

While this will be the 10th year the Fishcreek Raccoon Run will be held- we wanted to make sure the official 10th Annual is bigger than ever- so stayed tuned for 2022 on those events!

Important Factors to keep in mind: This will consist of just the race- no events will take place before or after the race as in previous years. The good news is though you can still run/walk and earn yourself a medal (for 5K finishers) and a tshirt! 

Also, the race spots are limited and each person will be assigned a start time and corral upon registering to keep everyone spaced out, so sign up early! 

See our COVID19 Guidelines for Participants & Volunteers 

Packets, t-shirts, 5K finisher medals are still a go for this year!! Also, look for swag items in our store while registering and checking out! 

Strollers are welcomed!
