Welcome to the 6th Annual Jacob Hershberger Memorial Run!

The race date is Saturday, August 12th.  Registration begins at 9:00 am and the Race will begin at 10:00 am. This will be a walking and running event.

12 and under
60 and over.

Top overal male and female will receive $100 each. 

Note: You must walk if you are signed up for the walk. We have some competitive walkers in the race and it wouldn’t be fair to those walking.

Please keep in mind race shirts are only guaranteed to those pre-registered by July 20th.

-          Your race entry fee includes a race t-shirt (pre-registered attendees only). 


Course 1 (run and walk) - A scenic, rolling hills course on grass and gravel that is great for both beginners and “seasoned” trail blazers looking for a challenge.  Since this is a run on nature’s trails, the course will be as close to 5K as we can get it!. 

Course 2 (walk only) - An easy stroll around the property for those unable to tackle the challenging hills. This is all flat and good for strollers, young children and elderly.

 Race Results: Race will be professionally timed by the GingerbreadMan Running Company.; Results will be found at

 Questions:      Send emails to and type “5K Race Director” in subject line.
