Running to 2022 5K

Let's run away from 2021 and straight into 2022!

The Abilene Sports Alliance will host the second annual 'Running to 2022 5K' event to help everyone start the new year on the right foot. It’s a great way to walk off the holidays, and proceeds will benefit a winning cause: scholarships to high school athletes and grants to support sporting events that generate hotel stays and bring business to Abilene.

Along with the 5K, there is also a 1 Mile Kids Fun Run.
