Race Information

This special silver anniversary event took place on June 4, 2017!  Join us June 3, 2018 for the 26th Annual Sprint for Monroe.

The Sprint for Monroe continues to be one of Monroe’s biggest community events.  In its 25th 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 24th 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).
