Licking Heights Boosters to Host First Hornet 5K Aug. 4
The Licking Heights Music Boosters, Athletic Boosters and PTO are joining together for the first-ever Hornets 5K on Sunday, August 4, 2024 at Licking Heights Middle School. The event includes a 5K run or walk option and a one-mile family fun run or walk.

Proceeds from the race will go towards supporting these three organizations. Registration is open to the public and costs $35 for each event. Proceeds will support the Boosters and PTO, and participants may choose which organization to support with their registration. The 5K events will start at 8 a.m., and the one-mile family fun run will start at 8:15 a.m. Register online here.

The course will be around the flat, paved Licking Heights campus and will start and end at the brand-new Athletic Complex, opening officially in the fall. All participants will receive a race shirt, bib and a finish medal with their registration. Packets may be picked up at the Pickerington location of Columbus Running Company, 1250 Hill Rd N, Pickerington, OH 43147 on August 3.

There will be awards presented to the top three overall male and female finishers in the 5K. The event also qualifies for the 2024 RUNColumbus Race Series, a competitive point-based race series for local runners.

Join us to celebrate the opening of the new Athletic Complex and support Licking Heights students.
