(ROCKWALL/HEATH, TX – Nov. 20, 2019) Join the Rockwall-Heath High School Cross Country team as they host their 5th Annual 5K Run and 1mile Fun Run on Saturday, December 14. The 1 Mile Fun Run will kick off at 8:30 a.m.; the 5K will start at 9 a.m. to ensure the course is clear.
This is the ONLY fundraiser that the team does throughout the entire year, and your participation helps fill a deficit in funding.
Come out to run a fast out-and-back 5K course starting and ending on the RHHS campus and through Heath neighborhood streets. This is a festive and fun run – so show up dressed in the spirit of the season. Friendly, leashed dogs are also welcome to participate. Awards are always given to our most festive human and canine runners.
*** New for 2019 ***
Team registrations are encouraged, so create a team during sign up, invite others to join your team, and your 5K registration fee is $20 per person when three or more participants join your team. Top teams will be recognized based on times as well as theme/costume. Also be sure to share your unique referral code via email, text and social media. After 5 people register using your unique link, you receive a $20 refund on your 5K entry!
Our fantastic sponsors will be on campus to serve up hot chocolate, coffee, donuts, face painting and crafts after the race while we tally up the award winners. 5K Awards for top male and female overall runner, as well as awards for the top male and female finishers in the following age groups: 10 and under, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over. This year we are featuring the one and only White Elephant Prize Table – you don’t want to miss this!

You may have someone pick up on your behalf; please provide them with a copy of your receipt and verification.
