Event Info

Franklin Regional Soccer Boosters is proud to announce the 21st Annual Beat the Heat 5K to take place on August 19th, 2023 @ 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 continues to grow strong. Our second year HS boy’s Coach, Lucas Petersen, is preparing to compete for his second consecutive appearance in section playoffs! The boys have been section champs each year since 2018. The girl’s HS program finished 2021 as section champs and last season making it through to the second round of playoffs. This year they look forward to another great season with fourth year coach, Scott Arnold. Everyone is 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.

Thank you in advance for supporting our Soccer program athletes.
