HOPE's Sham Rock n' Run 5K
March 15th - 8:30am
HOPE’s 3rd annual Sham Rock n' Run 5K is a charitable fun run and race that will provide much-needed additional funds for HOPE’s programs and services. HOPE’s mission is to prevent and reduce homelessness in Central Florida and Orlando by equipping individuals and families to become self sufficient through Housing, Outreach, Prevention, and Education.
Participants in the HOPE Sham Rock n' Run 5K can run, walk, skip, or hop through the 5K course in their St. Patty’s Day best, all to help families in crisis in our community. Registration includes race timing, a goody bag of snacks and special offers, an event t-shirt (if registered by Thursday, March 13, 2014), and entry into an after-party including a free beer to all participants 21 and older.
This is a family-friendly Orlando event. Strollers and baby joggers are welcome, however they must start at the back of the race group. Children pushed in strollers are free. Any child ages 10 and under may register to be timed in the race through "Little Leprechaun" Child Registration. Any child over the age of 10 must pay full registration fee.
