Run for the Ridge 5K

Holly Springs, NC

This year's theme is Super Heroes!

The event is a 5K course that begins in the HRMS front bus loop, continues through Sunset Ridge South and finishes back in the bus loop. Color stations will be set up throughout the course.  The color dust we will use is non-toxic, 100% safe and biodegradable.  We recommend donning a sweet pair of sunglasses for the run to keep the dust out of your eyes.  Don’t feel like getting colored as you run?  That’s ok, too!  The race course will be set up so that you can by-pass color stations.  Runners, walkers and strollers are all welcome.  Get ready to feel like a rock star when you cross that finish line, hear your name announced, get your medal and celebrate your accomplishment with friends!  Timing of the event will be brought to you by Precision Race.  DJ Ones will be on-site providing music to get you pumped up!  Refuel and rehydrate with a tasty treat from one of our food truck vendors! Snap some pictures with your squad at our photo backdrop station!  If you’ve never done a race, let us encourage you to give it a try!  It’s super fun!  

This is more than just fun, though.  HRMS is raising money to help keep our students and staff hydrated!  Profits from the run will go to purchasing and installing touchless water fountains/bottle fillers.  We are excited to help provide FRESH CLEAN RELIABLE drinking water to QUENCH THIRSTY BRAINS!
