Featuring Heart of Heath 5k, Family Run & Activities for All!

The City of Heath’s traditional Easter Saturday celebration on April 4 expands this year to include not only the Heart of Heath 5k, but a new Family Run and fun fitness activities for all ages.

Here’s a sampling of what to expect:

  • USATF Certified 5k course with chip-timed start and finish lines
  • 5k awards for Top 3 overall plus Top 3 male and female in each age bracket
  • Family Run if you aren’t ready for the 5k! (it’s one mile, you can do it)
  • Prize drawings and t-shirts for 5k and Family Run participants while supplies last
  • Yoga, Piyo, Zumba and Taekwondo demo classes
  • Little Kicker Soccer obstacle course
  • Giant-size games like chess, checkers, Jenga and Connect 4
  • A cool Easter kid’s craft in the Artstream Mobile Studio
  • Healthy treats like a complimentary mini fruit smoothie from Smoothie King

The fun begins rain or shine in Towne Center Park with a runners’ warm up at 8:15 a.m.; 5k and Family Runs start at 8:30 a.m.; and fitness activities follow until 11 a.m.

Online Registration is now closed… You can register at the event.
