We will be back May 14, 2022!
We will be back in action in 2022 for the CASA Superhero 5K! With the safety of our community a top priority, we had to make the decision to hold off on this incredible event until 2022, but we are super excited to announce our return to White Oaks in Bridgeport on Saturday, May 14, 2022.
Each year the community bands together as a league of superheroes to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected children in Harrison & Marion Counties.
The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Programs of Harrison & Marion County are volunteer-based agencies that advocate for the best interest of abused and neglected children involved in the foster care system. This event benefits both Harrison County CASA Program, Inc. and CASA of Marion County, Inc., allowing more funds to recruit, screen, & train new volunteers to advocate for these children.
Every child needs a hero; but abused & neglected children need a SUPERHERO!
PRICE: 5K registration is $25. Registration by 4/8/2022 guarantees a standard t-shirt for 5K participants.
Same day registration will be available beginning at 7:30 am race day!
Kids' Villain Chase for ages 12 & under will be $10. All children registered by 4/8/2022 will be guaranteed a superhero cape!!!
5K COURSE: The 5K course is rolling and features mixed terrain. It starts at near Steptoe & Johnson and heads down White Oaks Blvd. There are loops through various business lots before coming back to the main road. It's a long, downhill trek before reaching Rt. 131. You will then venture onto Barnett's Run Road, passing by 1-79 Trailer Sales and then head up the hill onto the gravel road. The course rejoins the asphalt and enters the Percheron parking lot, circling the building before emptying out onto the main road. There is a steady climb to the intersection before it turns left, heads downhill and circles the McFly's parking lot. It then climbs uphill to White Oaks Blvd. The finish is back at Steptoe & Johnson.
AWARDS: Medals will be given to overall winners - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each age division. All children participating in the Villain Chase will receive a children's medal.
Awards are also given as part of our costume contest to suit up in your favorite superhero costume and join us in the race against child abuse!
