Hawk Creek Run 5K
Saturday, August 24th at 8am
at MACCRAY East Elementary School

The 19th Annual HAWK CREEK RUN 5K, will start out the day’s events for the Raymond Harvest Festival on Saturday, 8/24/19 at 8 a.m.
 The Start/Finish (on pavement) is at MACCRAY East Elementary School. The majority of the course feels like a x-c/trail run as it winds around Hawk Creek CC and through Raymond’s scenic nature trail, primarily on grass & gravel. The Mile Run, free to all 5K registrants, also winds near the same golf course, and will begin at approximately 9 a.m., at the conclusion of the 5K. Runners ages 14 and under will automatically be given a $5 discount as they register.  Due to the relatively small amount of pavement, the race directors were informed that these courses (still the same routes as in earlier years) are no longer able to be USATF certified.

Awarded to the top three finishers in each age group of the 5K.
Individual age categories: Under 10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & over. The 1st place runners of each division will also be awarded a free voucher to participate in the Knockerball event that will be starting at 9:30 am that day in Raymond. 

The overall top male and female runner will receive a souvenir prize with their medal.

For the Mile Run, medals will be awarded to the top three male and female over-all finishers, age 18 and under. Ribbons to all participants, age 14 and under. Age divisions are open.


Team Contests
Fastest Team: Average time for top two from each team. Top 3 teams will be awarded RAR sweat towels, and the top overall fastest team will also receive two free Knockerball vouchers to be used that day in Raymond. 

Largest Team: RAR sweat towels will be given to the team with the most participants who register before race day. Team registrations being mailed in via USPS must be sent together.

**Runners will receive a two-for-one green fees coupon for the Hawk Creek Country Club (valid for up to 1 year). **The annual Dad’s Belgian Waffle Feed will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church, also near the finish line.

**Several fun activities are taking place for Raymond’s Harvest Festival (including KnockerBall — with 1st place runners of each division winning free vouchers to participate!), so you may want to plan to stay awhile in the town that “Everybody Loves…”

Registration: Price increases to $30.00 after August 16, 2019 at 11:59pm CDT 

Formerly known as the “Run Around Raymond 5K”, it follows the same course map with a x-c/trail run appeal. Runners will start in front of MACCRAY East Elementary, then weave around some of the perimeter of the Hawk Creek Country Club as they follow the creek, eventually running into the Raymond Nature Trail, then finishing on 5 of Raymond’s city blocks to end back at the school. Because there is minimal pavement, it is not able to be updated with a USATF certification.
