Fayette Regional Health System is again partnering with the Connersville High School to raise funds through this annual event. All proceeds benefit Fayette Regional Athletic Training Services and the Connersville High School Track & Field team.

Promoting overall health for Fayette and the surrounding counties is the impetus for Fayette Regional to participate in this event each year.  “Partnering in this 5K helps us to promote health among our participants in addition to raising funds,” Event Co-Chair and Supervisor for FRHS Rehabilitation Services Kim Gerrian said. Fayette Regional is here to promote healthy living and the benefit of living well.”

Connersville High School Track Coach, Kelli House, is in her sixth year as co-chair for this event and she is looking forward to the excitement it will bring to the CHS kids and the community.

“This year’s 5K offers an exciting flat and fast course that has proved to be a favorite of all CHS and local runners,” House said. “I expect the 9th annual Fayette 5K to be another great success for our community, FRHS and the Connersville track team. We have high hopes that this year we will increase our registrations and draw even more athletes from surrounding areas. “

The course begins at the corner of Indiana Avenue and 20th Street. It heads north, and winds through Roberts Park before an exciting stretch run back down Indiana Avenue to the finish.

All participants registered by March 23, are guaranteed to receive a commemorative Fayette 5K shirt. There will be trophies, door prizes and a FREE 2019 entry to the overall male and female run winners. The Fayette 5K will be fun for the whole family!
