Held On Easter Saturday Each Year… FUN & FIT IN THE PARK! Featuring the Heart of Heath 5K & 1-Mile Family Run.
The Heart of Heath 5k was established in 1994 by a group of dedicated volunteers to help raise funds for the construction of Towne Center Park, located behind Heath City Hall.
From 2011: “The Heart of Heath is kind of like our own version of the Turkey Trot,” said Heath Mayor John Ratcliffe. “It has become a hometown tradition that our residents love to share with friends and family who are visiting for the holiday.”
“Hosting this event on Easter weekend has clearly been a popular decision,” said Joel Palin, chairman of the City of Heath’s Special Events Board. “Our participation has increased each year as folks come out to share the camaraderie of a great event that promotes healthy lifestyles and community involvement.”
In the case of severe weather, safety procedures including RISD lightening policies will be followed.
