Join us for the 2nd annual John Mohr Memorial 5k, remembering John who passed away in June 2021 after a very short battle with cancer. As a beloved member of the Vianney High School family where he served as a teacher, coach, friend, and mentor we will remember John with a run and Turtle Trot (walk).

The course will start on the Vianney Track and run throughout the Vianney campus. We have added trophies for the 5k 13 and under age group and even have a fun run for ages 5 and under. This is a great day for the whole family. We will have brats, beer, and water for everyone, as well as entertainment (John loved Elvis!). Money raised will go towards the John Mohr Memorial Fund at Vianney High School.

Participate with your family and friends in the 7th Annual Piggyback Dash, a timed 10K and 5K run, as well as a 2K fun run/walk. This unique race will take you on a rolling course through Union with a challenging, but rewarding finish at the top of Autumn Hill. As part of the inspiration behind the race, runners have the option to voluntarily carry someone piggyback style up Autumn Hill to the finish line for extra finisher swag.

Why the Name

Throughout high school, Lance and friends would run almost everyday after dismissal. He routinely ran up Autumn Hill, sometimes using it for hill repeats. Lance loved the hill and the challenge it presented. He never complained about it. Rather, his was the voice of encouragement for others to rise to the challenge. In fact, he is the first person we know of to carry someone piggyback up the hill. Hence the race name, The Piggyback Dash.

Try your best on Manchester’s Rainbow Run 5k route! Be sure to keep an eye out for pesky bananas and red shells! This course is great for individuals and families. Each registrant will receive a shirt, finisher medal, post-run snacks, and other great swag (all while supplies last).

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the P.L.A.Y. Scholarship, which ensures area children can participate in outdoor programs like camp, sports, & swim lessons.
In the event that the in-person portion of this event cannot take place, it will become a virtual event. There will be no refunds issued for this event in any circumstances.

Themed costumes are not only encouraged, but they are also rewarded! The participant with the best costume will win a prize. Runners will also receive a raffle ticket after they finish for a chance to win one of our awesome prizes!

The costume contest and raffle will begin at 8:45am.
