Get excited- It is that time of year- and this year it is the 12 anniversary!! Put away those snow boots and get out those running shoes! The 12th Annual Fishcreek Raccoon Run will be held on Sunday, April 28th, 2024 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 28th- 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 12th 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!
