Get excited- It is that time of year- and this year it is the 11th anniversary!! Put away those snow boots and get out those running shoes! The 11th Annual Fishcreek Raccoon Run will be held on Sunday, April 30th, 2023 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 30th- 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! 

This is our 11th annual year holding this community event in person and would love for you to join us! Stay tuned for information regarding games, entertainment, and food!

Each registrant will receive a Tshirt and sponsor packet! (guaranteed shirt if you sign up by FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 2023)

All 5K finishers (including virtual 5K participants) will receive a finishers medal!

Strollers are welcomed! 


Packet pick up (tshirts, swag items and bib assignment) will be on Friday, April 28, 2023 at Heritage Barn. Look for more details for packet pick up in the future and an email will be sent to participants prior to race week. 

Packet Pick Up is for ALL participants (5K and 1 Mile Fun Runners AND Virtual Participants)
