The Baxter Fall Fest 5K is a complimentary community FUN RUN. This is a FREE event to kick off a day of festivities for the entire family. This is an opportunity for the entire family to participate. Start off Baxter Fall Fest by running with the kids. The run will start at 8 a.m. on Market Street in Baxter Village. The course is a one mile loop with prizes for the children for each loop completed.
The Baxter Fall Fest 5K is organized by the Fort Mill Running Club and is sponsored by Fleet Feet Sports. The Fort Mill Running Club is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. We will run through the streets of Baxter Village where homeowners will cheer on the runners. A start clock will be used to time the event; individual chip timing will not be provided.
Each year the FMRC provides a college scholarship award to a York County High School Senior cross country or track runner. The winning student is selected by the FMRC Board of Directors based on a written essay on how running has impacted their life, plus two referral letters. Individual running performance is not a criterial factor for winning the scholarship.
Upon registration for the Baxter Fall Fest 5K tax deductible donations will be taken to help fund the scholarship. When you register you may purchase the Fall Fest long sleeve shirt separately for $20 or with your charitable, tax-deductible donation of $35 or more to the FMRC, the Fall Fest long sleeve shirt is included. Long sleeve shirts will be limited.
Early registration by Oct. 10 will guarantee a sweatshirt. Donations are always welcome upon registration or the day of the event.
There is no packet pickup for this event. Purchased shirts can be picked up at the Fleet Feet Sport tent at the event.
