Spring Training 5K

& 1 Mile Kids Fun Run 

Saturday, April 8, 2017, 9:00am


It's that time of year again! We are all anticipating the beginning of Spring Training as it prepares our favorite teams for us to enjoy another fantastic season! So lace up your running shoes and join Highlands District 106 Board of Education Foundation for our Annual 5K and 1 mile kids fun run! 

Get your team spirit flowing by wearing your favorite team jersey, colors or costumes to share with others what Spring Training means to you! We will have a "Fanatic Fan" contest as well as medals for the winning runners. 

All proceeds from our race will go to the District 106 Board of Education Foundation which has been benefitting the students, alumni, staff and schools of Highlands for over 20 years! 

Grab your family and friends and cheer them on the way that you cheer on your favorite teams, while also helping enrich those who are a part of the fantastic District 106 Board of Education Foundation family!
