Race Information

Due to the continuing health situation, the 2020 Clover 5K will be held as a VIRTUAL event. This means you get to choose your own place to walk or run from September 26-October 10!  So sign up with your friends and family, grab a timing device and have a fun time running/walking for a purpose by supporting the Franklin County 4-H programs as well as over 15 area non-profit organizations!  We will miss hosting the in-person Clover 5K and celebrating with you at the Franklin County Fairgrounds but look forward to being able to be together in person next year for the exciting return of the Clover 5K.


Purpose of the Clover 5K

Young or old(er), runner or couch potato - we want you to be a part of our 2020 VIRTUAL Clover 5K!  

Celebrate one of the pillars of 4-H -- Health, to better living -- by running or walking wherever you choose whether it be your home, neighborhood, local park, etc. The Clover 5K is a run with a purpose. All funds help support the Walk & Serve- ("Park & Serve" for 2020), a community service event that benefits over 15 area non-profits and the populations they serve. Click here for more information.
