Description

Join us as Nashville Elementary and the Town of Nashville partner together to host our 2nd Annual Hometown Heroes 5K race. This race is presented by local sponsors as they partner with Nashville Elementary school to raise money for a new playground. The Tar River Timing is excited to help with this 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run held entirely in the town of Nashville.

ABOUT: The 2nd Annual Hometown Heroes race is designed to be a low cost race option that encourages runners to take a moment during this weekend to think about their freedoms and character traits that have been developed because of a special hero. The money raised will benefit the students and staff of the Nashville Elementary School. This 5k race is accurately measured and chip timed.

THE RACES: We will have a 5k race and a 1-mile run. All events are in the beautiful town of Nashville through scenic streets and beautiful shade trees. This 5k will guide the runners through a very small quaint town with a patriotic feel.

DOWN EAST 5K SERIES: The 2nd Annual Hometown Heroes 5k is part of the new Down East 5k Race Series. Learn more about other great events by checking out their website.

AID STATIONS: We will have aid stations throughout the race sponsored by local community groups. You will see these stations throughout your race offering only water on the course. Keep in mind the distance is only a 5k so we will space them out accordingly.

PACKET PICKUP: You may pick them up one hour before race time the day of the race.

AWARDS: Keeping with the very cost of this race, we have some simple (but unique) awards. This is more about the fun and recognition than it is about a shiny trophy.

SPONSORSHIP: We cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 2ndt annual Hometown Heroes 5k and 1 mile. The event will raise money to help fund phase II of our new playground. Your sponsorship helps defray the cost of organizing the event.
