The 34th Annual Hub Run: June 14, 2014
A 5k and 2K run that benefits the scholarship program at the Southlake Branch YMCA. Did you know that the Southlake Y doesn’t turn anyone away for the inability to pay? Money raised from this event goes to the YMCA scholarship program. Those scholarships are given to low income individuals and families so they can participate in programs and membership.
This community event has steadily grown in popularity and we're expecting 2,000 runners at the start line at Crown Point's historic downtown courthouse square. Register the whole family for this fun event and enjoy the post-race party on the square!
Awards given to Top Female and Male Overall; first, second & third place finishers in each age division for the 5K run; and Overall. Plus, awards given to the elementary school with the most participants!
Course Map - Changes for 2014!
The course starts and ends at Crown Point's historic downtown square. The 2K run will stay on Main Street. The 5K run takes you through neighborhoods with a finish on the west side of the court house. There will be water stops on the 5K course at both mile markers. All streets will be closed to traffic during the race.
Friday, June 13th from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. at the Southlake YMCA
Race Day Parking
Parking is available at Wheeler Middle School, St. Mary’s Church, Crown Point city streets and municipal lots. All vehicles parked on the square after 12:00 pm are subject to being towed to Midnight Blue Towing, 1502 E. North St., Crown Point. Race will be held rain, snow or shine.
