The first-ever “virtual” Back to School 5K is coming to the Village of Ottawa Hills Aug. 9-15. Because of COVID-19, the annual in-person race – a fundraiser for After Prom – is changing its format.
Here’s how it works: Participants create their own course and run anytime during race week Aug. 9-15. Race times can be submitted through Run Sign Up.
The entry fee is $20. Sign up at Run Sign Up through Aug. 4 to guarantee yourself a race T-shirt. After Aug. 4, shirt availability will be limited. Other details:
- During race week, there will be random drawings. Prizes include gift cards, T-shirts, BOGO offers, and more from locally owned and area businesses.
- For those who enter, you can drive through and pick up your race bag Sunday, Aug. 16 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Junior/Senior High School parking lot. (Any prizes won will be placed in the winner's race bag.)
This year's co-chairs are Marcy O'Loughlin and Holly Morgan. Thank you both very much!
