    Formerly known as the "Run Around Raymond 5K", it follows the same course map with a x-c/trail run appeal. Runners will start in front of MACCRAY East Elementary, then weave around some of the perimeter of the Hawk Creek Country Club as they follow the creek, eventually running into the Raymond Nature Trail, then finishing on 5 of Raymond's city blocks to end back at the school. Because there is minimal pavement, it is not able to be updated with a USATF certification.

The 18th Annual Hawk Creek Run 5K

The 18th Annual HAWK CREEK RUN 5K, will start out the day's events for the Raymond Harvest Festival on Saturday, 8/25/18 at 8 a.m. The Start/Finish (on pavement) is at MACCRAY East Elementary School. The majority of the course feels like a x-c/trail run as it winds around Hawk Creek CC and through Raymond's scenic nature trail, primarily on grass & gravel. The Mile Run, also winding near the same golf course, begins at approximately 9 a.m., at the conclusion of the 5K. Due to the relatively small amount of pavement, the race directors were informed that these courses (still the same routes as in previous years) are no longer able to be USATF certified.

Medals
Awarded to the top three finishers in each age group of the 5K.
Individual age categories: Under 10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & over. The 1st place runners of each division will also be awarded a free voucher to participate in the Knockerball event that will be starting at 9:30 am that day in Raymond.

The overall top male and female runner will receive a souvenir prize with their medal.

For the Mile Run, medals will be awarded to the top three male and female over-all finishers, age 18 and under. Ribbons to all participants, age 14 and under. Age divisions are open.

Team Contests
Fastest Team: Average time for top two from each team. Top 3 teams will be awarded RAR sweat towels, and the top overall fastest team will also receive two free Knockerball vouchers to be used that day in Raymond.

Largest Team: RAR sweat towels will be given to the team with the most participants who register before race day. Team registrations being mailed in via USPS must be sent together.

**Runners will receive a two-for-one green fees coupon for the Hawk Creek Country Club (valid for up to 1 year). **The annual Dad's Belgian Waffle Feed will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church, also near the finish line. **Several fun activities are taking place for Raymond's Harvest Festival (including KnockerBall -- with 1st place runners of each division winning free vouchers to participate!), so you may want to plan to stay awhile in the town that "Everybody Loves..."

Courses

The Start/Finish Line is at MACCRAY East Elementary School. The 5K (USA Track & Field Nationally Certified - #MN-02019-RR) is a combination grass/gravel/trail/pavement course that winds around Hawk Creek Country Club (HCCC) and through Raymond’s scenic nature trail. The mile course also runs near the HCCC. There will be refreshments and fruit at the finish line and a water station near the 2 mile mark.

*Due to weather problems in 2017, a Route B (still primarily unpaved) was planned. A Route C is now also mapped out. It is not as scenic, and is mostly paved, but it will help the directors to avoid cancelling the race due to “swampy” circumstances.

5K Medals

Awarded to the top three finishers in each age & gender group of the 5K: Under 10, 11-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & over.

Mile Run Awards

Medals to the top three male & female over-all finishers, age 18 & under. Participant ribbons to all runners age 14 & under.

Team Contests

Registrations must be online or sent in together to qualify for either category:

**Fastest Team: Average time for top two runners from each team. Top 3 teams will be awarded RAR sweat towels.

**Largest Team: RAR sweat towels will be given to the team with the most participants who register before race day.

Notes:

***Runners will receive a coupon to golf the course they have just Run Around (2 green fees for the price of one)

**Raymond's Harvest Festival will have many fun activities taking place that day, so you may want to plan to stay awhile... in the town that “Everybody Loves…”
