Featuring Heart of Heath 5k & 1-Mile Family Run

The City of Heath’s traditional Easter Saturday celebration includes not only the Heart of Heath 5k, but the new 1-Mile Family Run and fun activities for all ages in Town Center Park from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

5k Heart of Heath Tradition

The center-piece of this outdoor celebration is the Heart of Heath 5k, which as always remains family-friendly and open to all ages and athletic abilities ranging from the casual walker or baby jogger to the elite runner.

1-Mile Family Run

If you or the younger ones in your family aren’t quite up to a 5K, the Family Run is the perfect opportunity to test out your wheels on a one-mile course that will be integrated into the 5K course with the same start and finish line.

The Family Run starts at 8:15 a.m., the 5k begins at 8:30 a.m., and 5k awards and prize drawings will follow at 9:30 a.m. All run registrants will get a T-shirt while supplies last.
