Frassati 5K

We are beyond thrilled to bring this beloved fall tradition back to an in-person event for the FIFTH-ANNUAL, Frassati 5K, scheduled for Friday, October 8, 4:00 p.m.!
 
While the 5K is truly a fun run, welcome to runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels, we understand that younger kids may want to run a race that is all about them! So at 3:30 p.m. on the Frassati soccer fields, kids ten and younger are welcome to complete a smaller run course, known as the Little Tyke Fun Run. Those who register for this option will still receive a 5K shirt.
