Race to the Finish 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run

Start planning to run Northside’s 3rd annual global missions run, Race to the Finish 5K & 1 Mile Family and K-9 Fun Run, on Saturday, September 8.

5K Run/Walk

As in previous years, the entire 5K will be run on our church property with a mix of trails and pavement. No cars to dodge and no intersections to run through.

There will be water stops on the trail and it will be officially timed by FasTrak Timing.

1 Mile Family & K-9 Fun Run

The 1 Mile Fun Run is family and K-9 friendly. So grab your stroller, wagon and leashes to run/walk for missions as a family. The run is entirely on our internal church property on paved roads.

Raised Funds

Funds raised from this event will go to the work of missionary, Matt Mattos, with World Nations. “Together we are fighting hunger and poverty through sustainable agriculture and community development.”  Learn more at www.worldnationsusa.org.
