The Sprint for Monroe is an event that caters to both the elite runner as well as the family looking to do something healthy together.  We have group pricing for groups of 4-6 registering at the same time ($2.50 off per person) as well as a team rate of $18 or more (10 or more people required for discount).

NO PRIZES will be awarded in the virtual race, but a T shirt will be available for all finishers (pickup only in areas local to Monroe, available to ship for an added fee elsewhere).

The Sprint for Monroe continues to be one of Monroe’s biggest community events.  In its 28th year and going strong, its popularity is based on the fact that it allows families, neighbors, and friends to come together and celebrate healthy living and physical fitness.

“Where else in your everyday life do you see onlookers applauding wildly as Grandma and Grandpa cross the finish line hand-in-hand with their preschool grandchildren? ” says Dr. Paul Moyse, Co-Director of the race for over 20 years.

Last year’s 27th Annual Sprint for Monroe raised nearly $19,000, due to wonderful support from our many sponsors as well as record turnout in participants for the race.  These funds were able to benefit many local charities and organizations.  From youth programs to volunteer EMS to our food pantry to drug and alcohol awareness programs, the race truly is a Sprint for all of Monroe.

This year’s race, sponsored by the Kimball Group and dozens of other sponsors, will continue in its tradition to support youth programs, educational initiatives and other local not-for-profit groups.

The Sprint for Monroe 5K is sanctioned by the USATF (USA Track and Field).

Mission

The premier Monroe road race that began 28 years ago as a local Jaycees community-service project with just over 200 runners has evolved over the years to become a major regional 5K race and fun run with nearly 700 runners and walkers in 2019. This year’s race, sponsored by many local organizations, will continue in its tradition to support youth programs and other local not-for-profit groups.

The Sprint has always geared its mission toward funding local projects, charity groups, and educational initiatives for our youth.  The event seeks to give back to the community in meaningful ways by bringing the town together for one day, one morning, one amazing race.  Last year’s race benefited the following groups:  Monroe Food Pantry, Project Warmth Monroe, Monroe Volunteer EMS, Stepney Volunteer Fire Department, ADAM (Alcohol and Drug Awareness Monroe), Monroe Youth Commission, Monroe Friendship Fund, the Chase Kowalski Memorial Fund, Monroe Parks and Rec Department, the Masuk Track Team, the Masuk Color Guard Team and Masuk Swim Team.

The Sprint for Monroe is a day where the community comes together to celebrate activity and fitness and to support each other. We run, we walk, we volunteer, we sponsor the event held in our own backyards. You can literally feel the spirit and the positive energy throughout the morning. From the registration to the kids’ race to the run to the post race party, the day is filled with fun.
