Race Day Information

On October 16, 2021, the 9th Annual Paint the Parkway Pink Fun Run presented by the ThriveWell Cancer Foundation will be held at Cornerstone Christian School.

We are REINVENTING this race after the pandemic-required virtual race in 2020, while continuing to spotlight awareness and support for those with breast cancer. So bring your running shoes, your pink gear, and get ready to run some bases (without even hitting a homerun), climb some stairs, and sprint to the finish on the track! This will not be your ordinary 5k, it will be so much more!

Online registered participants in the 5K race, the one-mile walk, and the kid’s run will receive a race t­-shirt (adult and youth sizes available). Awards will be presented to the top three overall finishers (male and female), top masters finishers (male and female) and top breast cancer survivor, all in the 5K race. Also, all kids 10 and under who complete the 5k will receive a special trophy!  Largest Group and Most Spirited Group will have awards, so get your friends together and create a team when you register.

We will also be offering a VIRTUAL option for this race.  In-town participants will need to get their race day packet at packet pick-up, unless requested by emailing us at painttheparkway@gmail.com.  Out-of-town participants will have their packet mailed.  All virtual runners/walkers will receive a t-shirt and medal in a goodie bag.
