Now in its eighteenth year, the Sunset House 5K has traditionally had something for everyone: a fast, challenging, 3.1 mile 
course, plenty of food, refreshments and prizes—all within a fun and friendly family atmosphere. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Sunset House 5K Run and Fitness Walk event is going virtual! This means participants can run and walk anywhere and anytime. 

All proceeds from the race go to Sunset House which provides alternative living arrangements for residents who are unable to receive hospice care services in their own homes. Focusing on quality of life rather than quantity of time, Sunset House supports the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of its residents, allowing them to maintain control during an important time of transition. Whether you’re a runner, walker—or somewhere in between— please join us on October 7th-17th -- and put your best foot forward for a great organization.

Start Time:  12:01 am EDT Saturday, October 7

End Time:  11:59 pm EDT Saturday, October 17

Price:  $25 Race Fee

Registration:  Price Increases to $30.00 after 10/4/2020 at 11:59 p.m. EDT
