RALLY YOUR HIGH SCHOOL AND TAKE HOME THE FIRST DOWN 5K TROPHY

 

How: It’s simple! The high school with the most participation points takes the trophy! Upon registration each participant will select the high school they are running/walking for, and each participant earns that school points. So, the more people who sign up in support of a school – the better chances that school has of taking home the coveted First Down 5K Trophy.

 

BUT every school is a winner! ALL schools will earn 10% of its race registration proceeds.

 

Good things happen when the school and community come together and commit to showing up in numbers. We encourage students, teachers, coaches, parents, families, and community members to get involved and sign up to compete for your high school – and show your support of athletics and other extracurricular activities!
