Good Afternoon All,

It's that time of year!!!  The 2nd annual Akida H. Jordan Perseverance 5K, in support of Cancer Research, takes place on September 14, 2019 on a scenic course during the last weeks of Summer.  It starts on the North end of the Indian Head Rail Trail and proceeds directly South.  There are a few curves as the course follows the 1.55 mile stretch down to the midway part of the course.  After making the loop around, you finish the last 1.55 miles running into a crowd, cheering and motivating you to cross the finish line.  The event also includes a post-race awards ceremony complete with music and refreshing snacks. 

The Akida H. Jordan Perseverance 5K will be one of the most popular races to prepare for the fall running season.  There is a 200-participant limit, so register early to ensure a spot!!!  We look forward to seeing you all again this year and we hope you'll have a good time racing for a good cause once again!!
