5k Downtown Dash & 10k River Run
The Foundation’s road race is returning in 2017 with a new name and look! In addition to the annual 5k Downtown Dash, we’ve brought back the popular 10k River Run. Proceeds from Run Mount Holly allow the Foundation to continue making Mount Holly a great place to live, work, shop, and play. Along with two great race courses, there will also be music, prizes, and special activities for runners (and their families) of all ages and abilities. Mark your calendars now for Saturday morning, April 29th.
