Community Run 5k
WHAT IS IT?
A longstanding tradition with Redmond High School Cross Country, the first week of the season we host the Coach Villeneuve Community Run 5k. This race honors Denis Villeneuve, the former head coach of Redmond XC for 35+ years, serves as a time trial for our athlete's first 5k race of the season, and is our biggest annual fundraiser.
WHO CAN RUN?
All Redmond Cross Country athletes run this race and all community members, friends, family, alumni race alongside them!
WHEN IS IT?
The first Saturday of the Cross Country season, typically the last Saturday in August. There is no pre-race registration. Registration starts at 8:30am and the race begins at 10:00am. The kids 1k race is directly after the 5k at 10:45am.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Suggested donation of $15 per runner or $40 per family. The race is sponsored by the Redmond XC Booster Club. All money directly supports the boys and girls cross country program at Redmond High School. We use this money to fund team t-shirts, pasta feeds, equipment and more.
