*** 2019 Greenhills Pioneer Run 5K Planning is underway ***

The 40th running of the Greenhills Pioneer Run 5K will occur this year on Saturday, October 5th, in conjunction with the Greenhills Harvest Day. The race will start at 8am, costs $10 for an individual or $15 for a family, and will start and finish at the Greenhills Commons.

This is a change from our usual time frame around the end of June, since Greenhills has moved their Pioneer Days event to October as Harvest Day. Due to our lean budget, and our desire to maximize donations to our non-profit we have decided to leverage the tents, tables, and port-o-lets that will be there for Harvest Day. We thank you for your understanding, and we welcome your feedback on this change of date.

As the date approaches, we will provide details on our preregistration option. 

Thank you to the Kiwanis of Greenhills / Forest Park for again sponsoring this event. All proceeds from this event go to the Kiwanis Scholarship Fund. Thank you also to the racers that come out year after year to make this such a special event!

This race was started 40 years ago by local runner Bob Carlson.  Bob is no longer with us, but his vision lives on!  One of Bob's goals for the event was to have it be inexpensive, which was displayed in the early entry fees being only $1.  Due to planning costs Bob reluctantly raised the entry fees to $5.  It's a perfect race for new runners, as well as those that are looking for an enjoyable run through beautiful Greenhills!
