Back to School 5K Walk/Run

Join us as we celebrate the start of the upcoming school year, socially distant of course, at the annual SHDHS Back to School 5K Walk/Run, Virtual Edition on Saturday, August 15!

It’s the same 5K that you know and love, only virtual. This means that participants can run or walk whenever and wherever they want (even on their treadmill). This also means that Crusaders who couldn’t previously participate in the on-campus 5K because they either live out of town or had a scheduling conflict can now join in the fun while helping raise money for SHDHS scholarships.

A virtual race is basically like running a race with tons of other people…just not all at the same place. No crowds, no waking up at dawn to find parking, no rushing to get to the starting line on time, and no worrying about bad weather at race time. Just sign up and run or walk 5K (3.1 miles).

Every registrant will receive an SHDHS Back to School 5K Walk/Run race bib in the mail. Once the bib has been received, participants can choose to walk or run their own race at the day and time of their choosing. We do ask that participants please take a picture of themselves (with their race bib visible) and post it to their personal social media pages…and then please share their posts to St. Henry District High School’s social media pages.  If participants don’t have a social media account, they can email pictures to [email protected]. Everyone who submits a race picture will be entered into a drawing for a special prize package!

Any participant who would like to be considered for the fastest time in their given race division should send a screenshot showing the date, distance, and time completed for their race, along with a picture showing them with their race bib, to [email protected]. There will be one male runner and one female runner winner for each division. Winners will be announced by Monday, August 17.

The donation request for participating in the SHDHS Back to School 5K Walk/Run, Virtual Edition is $15. Race t-shirts are also available for an additional $10 each. Participants will be notified when t-shirts are available for pick-up from our school office (shipping is available – please see the order form for details). Any t-shirt ordered after Monday, August 10 will not be available before race day.

Just as in years past, participants can choose to have all proceeds from their entry fee go to support an SHDHS Scholarship.

We look forward to meeting everyone on the virtual starting line on Saturday, August 15.
