Hart is proud to host its annual Memorial Day 5K race in downtown Hart. The race is named in honor of Rich Tompkins, who helped plan this event and left an indelible mark in the community. Runners, hand cyclists, and walkers line up downtown to step off on a 1, 2 or 3.1-mile scenic trek through the streets of Hart, with a course that includes a trip through the Hart Public School Campus, and a jaunt on the Hart Montague bike trail. The race ends with an enjoyable downhill finish on State Street to Hart Commons.
Inspired by its namesake, the challenging race is a certified 5K attracting runners, hand cyclists, and walkers from all over.
