Mission 5K: Benefitting 2 Charities & YOU!

Saturday, August 13th, 8:30AM
Downtown Winston-Salem

I am not in the greatest shape right now, but I'm thinkin' I can walk this thing if I have to. It's only 3.1 miles and benefits two great charities (and it would do me some good, too).  

The Mission 5K was created in partnership between Fleet Feet Sports and the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission, in an effort to benefit two mission-oriented charities that are driven by reaching out to others in need. 
100% of race proceeds benefit Winston-Salem Rescue Mission and Mission: Feet First.

$25 until July 15th
$28 until August 10th
$30 through August 13th
Race cap is 800 participants.
At Fleet Feet Sports: Registration is available in-store at Fleet Feet Sports through Friday, August 12th and in person race morning at the race location. Cash/check only on race morning.
