Race Information

Thank you for your interest in the 7th Annual Nursing 5K Challenge and Kids Fun Run at Pole Green Park in Mechanicsville.

Weather permitting; you will be running/walking on the cross country running course, which consists of grassy and wooded trails. The 1-Mile Kids Fun Run will be on the grassy trails only. For the 5K, a water station will be available at the halfway point. There will be light refreshments for participants after each race.

Don’t have kiddos old enough to do the Kids Fun Run but you want to walk/run the 5K? Bring that stroller along! The cross country trails are stroller-friendly however there are a few areas on the wooded trail that offer hills and may be a bit bumpy so just be prepared. We encourage you to check out the trails over the summer to ensure you are comfortable using your stroller on the day of the event.

Our event is dog-friendly. Per Hanover County Park rules, dogs must be vaccinated, licensed and on a leash at all times. There is a great dog park at Pole Green that Fido can also enjoy after the race.
