The Hustle is back in 2021 for our fourth annual 5k event!

To best protect the health and safety of every participant, volunteer, and community member involved in presenting The Hustle for the Homeless, currently mandated safety, sanitation, and social distancing guidelines will be implemented and adjusted as necessary. All best practice recommendations from the CDC and will be followed. Participants should be aware and understand that some procedures will be different and will require their attention and patience. Details for a socially distanced wave start will be provided in a future email and at packet pick-up. As part of this health and safety plan, only chip timed participants will be allowed on course during the event; this will allow for further separation/social distancing and fewer start waves. All other participants are encouraged to use alternate routes of their choice (i.e., nearby parks, greenways, treadmill, track, etc.) to complete their race distance. Spectators will be asked to socially distance themselves along the course or in event areas. Proper hand washing/sanitizing is expected at all times.


The fourth annual Hustle for the Homeless 5K & Hustle at Home VIRTUAL 5K, benefiting The Least of These Ministry, is now open for team and individual registration! 

Our downtown course will test your hustle as it twists and turns through some of Roanoke's most well known streets, giving you a glimpse of the places some of our friends call "home". The Hustle starts at the corner of 5th & Marshall, pushing hustlers through the heart of downtown Roanoke, paying tribute to area landmarks like the MLK Bridge, Virginia Museum of Transportation, The Hotel Roanoke, and the iconic St. Andrews Roman Catholic Church. A flat finish, fun atmosphere, and a family friendly post-race awards party make The Hustle a top option to round out your spring racing calendar or to get your warm-weather engine running. With two different registration options, Chip Timed Race & Virtual 5K, we have a Hustle to fit every fitness level!

RETURNING FOR 2021:  The Hustle at Home VIRTUAL 5k option!
All runners/walkers that do not wish to be chipped timed and compete for awards can register under our most versatile race option, Hustle at Home VIRTUAL 5k. The Hustle at Home 5k is a virtual event option that allows participants to run, walk, ride, or hustle in any way over a 3.1 mile course of their choosing during the specified date range.
