7th Annual Hastings Harvest 5k Run

​This USA Track and Field sanctioned event will be chip-timed by RaceWire. The race begins at the Hayden lower field on Worthen Road. Both runners and walkers will enjoy a scenic, yet challenging route through the local community. The 5k race ends where it began at the Hayden Lower Field. Walkers will complete a shorter 1.5 mile loop. Young children are encouraged to run, walk or ride in a stroller! Just get out there!  

The post-race celebration begins immediately following the race. We will have food, music and activities for children of all ages. Grab your friends, challenge your co-workers and encourage your kids to “Get Up and Get Moving!” 

Each year, the Hastings Harvest Run has 400 to 500 registrants participating in the run and/or walk and more than 600 people in attendance for the post race party. Be a part of the Maria Hastings Elementary school’s ongoing commitment to keeping health and fitness in the forefront for their students and staff. All proceeds benefit the Maria Hastings Elementary School.

Register online by 9/30 or register on race day between 9:30am and 10:30am. Cost to enter is $25 per person.

Not to brag, but the Hastings Harvest Run has one of the best post race parties in Lexington.  In addition to the free food, bounce houses, music and prizes, this year we have added a few more extras.
  • DJ Lucas Burkholder, a former Hastings student, will be bringing down the house with custom mixes of today's Top 40 and hip hop music! 
  • We will have a large bounce house and a small one for 5 and under!
  • Katie Bettencourt, our art teacher, will be leading a Hastings school spirit art project (banner). 
  • Scott Heinzie, our PE teacher,  will be leading the kids in some field games.
  • We will have a "Meet Your Parent"/First Aid Tent near the finish line.
  • We will feature multiple Recycling & Composting Stations.
  • Hastings Harvest Run Hats will be given out to all our top finishers!
