It's time to dig out those running shoes.
The FishHawk Ranch Road Race is back for a 16th year with a brand-new Twilight Run.
While the timing has changed, the annual 5K race and 1-mile kids’ fun run at Park Square will once again rally FishHawk Ranch community members to raise funds for the area’s six top-rated schools – Bevis Elementary, FishHawk Creek Elementary, Stowers Elementary, Barrington Middle, Randall Middle and Newsome High.
Last year's race attracted more than 1,000 runners and raised $20,000 for the schools.
This year the race will begin 5 p.m. for the kids and at 5:30 p.m. for the 5K. The race will begin at Park Square and runners will meander through the neighborhoods.
Beginner and seasoned runners, FishHawk Ranch residents, community members and kids of all ages are welcome to participate in the races or watch from the sidelines. Participants can register for the race at www.fishhawkranch.com.
Registration is $25 in advance or $30 race day for the 5K and $15 for the kids race. Race packets will be available Friday, March 8 from noon to 7 p.m. at Hit the Trails, 13433 FishHawk Blvd., Lithia.
Awards will recognize the top male and female runners in the 5K race, as well as the top three in each age group, and all kids will receive commemorative ribbons.
The post-race party will feature live music with Raizing Cain, giveaways and food from Chick-fil-A Lake Brandon Village, Jet's Pizza and Beef O' Brady's at FishHawk.
