Call for more info!

The Shawsville 5K course is one of the flattest road courses in the area.  The course is essentially a simple loop through and around Shawsville. There is one small hill at ~2.5 miles, followed by a long gentle downhill to the finish.


The race is family friendly, and includes both a free one mile fun run for kids, as well as a competitive "fastest family" category in the 5K race.  Join the Shawsville community in celebrating the birth of our nation, as well as the long history of this race, now in its 36th year.  We are also celebrating the 30+ years of leadership by our race director, Marvin Ballard.

This web site serves both the shawsville 5k (July 4, 2017) and the Shawsville Cross Country 5k (Nov. 2017, date tba)
