Description

Roanoke County Public Schools Education Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization, is presenting the 3rd Annual Backpack 5K Run/Walk. Proceeds will be used to provide scholarships for graduating seniors and grants for teachers. Several sponsorship levels are available!

Runners can also take the Backpack Challenge – purchase a new backpack, fill with school supplies, and drop it off after the race! (Optional Event)

The course for the 2016 Backpack Run has been changed to incorporate the Roanoke River Greenway. Runners will start on the roadway by the baseball fields. Runners will follow the roadway back to the main entrance to Green Hill Park. Runenrs then turn left onto the Roanoke River Greenway and follow the paved path back to the baseball fields. Runners will then do a second lap, following this same course to the finish in the cul-de-sac by the parking area.
