Fifth Annual Mission Hills 5K
Hello Mission Hills 5k Registrants and Supporters,

First and most importantly, we hope this email finds you and yours well. It’s been a challenging few months for all of us, but we’re all in this together. Thank you for all of your patience and support as we made the very difficult decision to postpone this year’s run in an effort to protect the wellbeing and safety of you and our entire community.

Today, we’re writing with good news. You will get your tshirts, you will get your goodie bags, and you will get to participate in the 2020 Virtual Mission Hills 5k! (Kids age 15 and under will get medals, too.) We’ve also re-opened registration, so it’s not too late to sign up.

Here’s how it’s going to work:

Race Packet Pick Up. To allow for social distancing, our volunteers will be handing out race packets—which includes your tshirt and goodie bag—from Saturday, May 30 through Saturday, June 6. Volunteers will be outside the home of Tracey Lilly at 4134 Miller Street from 9 am to 12 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm each day. If these times don’t work, simply text Tracey at 619-297-1234 to arrange a convenient pick up time.

The Virtual Run. The Virtual Mission Hills 5k will take place from June 7-20 to allow for social distancing. Simply put on your MH5K tshirt (and bib if you’re already registered). Then either run or walk the MH5K route (we’ll have route info in your goodie bags) or embark on any route of your choice. We just want you to enjoy some healthy time outdoors in the spirit of the Mission Hills 5k!

Share Your Photos. Then, because we miss seeing your faces cross the finish line SO MUCH, we’d love for you to share your run pics on Facebook and Instagram. Please tag us @mission_hills_5k and #missionhills5k

Have Fun & Feel Proud. It’s been quite the year for our students at Grant K8. They’ll need every resource possible next year when they return to school, and teachers, through virtual teaching, have discovered areas they could use additional support as well. Once again, all proceeds from the run will support STEAM programs at Grant K8. So thank you!

Support Our Sponsors! Our local businesses need our support MORE THAN EVER! This is the 5th Annual Mission Hills 5k, and our run simply wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. When you see a sponsor’s name on our website, on social media and on our tshirts, please keep them in mind when you look for a new home, need insurance, are ordering a meal in, need commercial cleaning services, are grocery shopping, are looking for a gift and so much more.

Mission Hills Hoodies for Sale. You asked, so we made more Mission Hills 5k hoodies! They’ll be for sale for $40 each at race packet pick up. Many kids and adult sizes are now available.

We look forward to seeing you starting May 30 at race packet pick up!

Many thanks,

The Mission Hills 5k Team
