Event Info

Franklin Regional Soccer Boosters is proud to announce the 20th Annual Beat the Heat 5K to take place on August 20th, 2022 @ 8:00 AM..

Race proceeds will benefit the girls and boys Franklin Regional High School and Middle School Soccer programs. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Murrysville Miracle Field of Western PA.

The Franklin Regional Soccer program as a whole is strong as it has ever been. Our second year HS boy’s Coach, Thomas Louisy, is preparing to compete for its fifth consecutive appearance in section playoffs! The girl’s HS program finished last season as section champions. This year they look forward to another great season with third year coach, Scott Arnold. It goes without saying that the excitement among our student athletes is again at a feverish level. They are all anxious to get back on the field to begin putting in the hard work that is necessary to be the best they can be! The coaching staffs are equally excited to continue their work on shaping the lives of the student athletes.

In honor of our 20th year we will be offering a Kona Ice to each registered participant.

Thank you in advance for supporting our Soccer program and the Murrysville Miracle Field of Western PA.

We aim to provide an enjoyable, healthy and safe event. However, when dealing with people, it can be challenging. Anyone registering for and attending this event must realize that he or she must be held accountable for his or her actions and reactions. We must be responsible and abide by restrictions set by our staff, community and government.

If you feel that the health risk of attending this race is greater than the anticipated benefit, we request that you do not register for this event. If state mandated guidelines change before race day to the extent that the event must be cancelled, your entry fee will not be refunded. We have significant expenses coming into the event, and runners must realize that it is a risk that they must take when registering. The entry limit is expected to fill in a relatively short period of time, so don’t gamble too long in delaying to register.

This is the 20th year for this event, and the last thing we want to do is cancel it. We will do anything in our power to hold it. Please be cognizant that some things just may be out of our control.
