Believe! 5k and 10k Race 14th Anniversary Event

Saturday, November 30, 2019

Join the Fun and Benefit Holy Family School
Create a healthy holiday tradition with your family, friends and neighbors at the Believe! 5K and 10K race two days after Thanksgiving.

If you're looking for a fun family event, dress in your best holiday attire and enjoy a 5K walk, the Great Santa Chase! or a one-mile holiday walk. The routes are breathtaking with the colorful fall foliage in November and the view of McKinney’s beautiful historic homes, and the hills make the race challenging enough for even the more competitive runners.

For serious runners, the 5k and 10k races are operated by PlayTri, and the courses are chip-timed and are officially certified by USATF. Children must be 6 to wear their own race bib. Strollers are allowed on 5k and 1 mile courses only.

The event benefits Holy Family School, providing preschool tuition assistance for low income families. Holy Family meets the needs of McKinney and the surrounding area’s diverse population by promoting a sense of self-worth, a respect for others and a love for learning, and has been doing it since 1951.

This event is sponsored in part by McKinney Community Development Corporation.
