The Community Schools program of Metropolitan brings academic and social supports to schools to ensure that students succeed academically as well as in their future lives. Community Schools engages children in enrichment programming before and after the school day, and on weekends. Such programming includes academic remediation, technology training, art classes, recreation and sports programming. Unfortunately, contracts for such programming do not cover total costs and the 5K has become a strategy to bridge the budget gap.
Race will begin promptly at 8:00a.m. No dogs, roller blades, bicycles, or skateboards allowed on course.
Our course is USATF Certified!
