On Saturday, November 8, Pasco County’s Connerton community will stage certified 10K and 5K runs plus a Kids Fun Run with proceeds to benefit Operation Helping Hand. This non-profit organization aids the families of wounded and injured active-duty military during their stay in Tampa Bay while undergoing treatment at the James A Haley Veterans Hospital.
Named the Connerton Challenge, this first annual runners’ event is open to the public. Participants may register online at http://www.connerton.com by the October 30th deadline. The 10K race start is 7:30 a.m.; the 5K start is 7:45 a.m. and the Kids Fun Run is at 9 a.m. The track begins on Connerton Blvd. and winds through the community.
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
First Place overall for male and female runners in both 5K and 10K races.
Top Three Places for 10-year age groups in both 5K and 10K races.
All runners will be entered into a raffle for additional prizes.
Connerton is Pasco County’s award-winning New Town, located on US41 in Land O’Lakes in the Northern Tampa Bay Area market. The community features nearly two miles of nature trails, a 10,000 square-foot clubhouse and miles of beautiful winding roads and walkways, all of which are thoughtfully laid out to preserve the wild wetlands and grassy expanses of the original Conner Ranch.
