Wildhorse 5K + Fun Run

UPDATE: THE LUTHER WILDHORSE 5K + FUN RUN HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS CRISIS.

 

The Luther Parks Commission and the Luther Register are teaming up to present our first ever Wildhorse 5K + Fun Run to raise money to update our town’s Wildhorse Park. The event will be held at the high school on Saturday, April 18, 2020, the same day as Luther’s Emergency Preparedness Fair.

Special thanks to Wildhorse 5K and Fun Run sponsors Haskell Lemon Construction, The Eldridge Family, Main Street Nutrition and Kandi Malphrus from Providence Realty.

We are lucky to have Luther’s own Track Coach Stan Higdon organizing the race for us, just as he’s done for nearly 20 years for our track and cross-country athletes. He recently announced his retirement, so a big show of Luther alumni would be super meaningful. The 5K race will begin at the track and then the course will head toward town over to Wildhorse Park and then finish back at the school. Hand-timed, awards will go to the top three finishers in the women’s race and the top three in the men’s race. The first 100 5K participants are guaranteed a t-shirt with original design by local artist Morian Grady. Cost for the 5K is $25.

The fun run/walk will be a mile and costs $5 for everyone older than five years old. Registration for this race does not include a tshirt or prizes, it’s just for fun … and a good cause.

If you would like to jump in as a sponsor, let us know. We are on a mission to raise funds to improve our park for everyone.

Register below for the race, and plan to stick around for the Emergency Preparedness Fair. We hear there’s going to be a helicopter, plenty of opportunities to touch a fire truck for the littles, and lots of information for families about what to do in case of an emergency, like a fire, storm, flood or tornado. It’s going to be a great day to run, play, learn and raise funds to improve Wildhorse Park!
