Race the Cross

Welcome to the 10th annual Mattoon Knights of Columbus Race the Cross.  This race is held in honor of Anthony Sheehan and a portion of the proceeds are donated to Camp New Hope.  Race Day is June 22, 2019.  This year our 10K will start at 7:30 and the 5K at 7:45.  Our race still boasts a low registration fee of just $30 for early registration.  Processing fees are included in the price of registration.

We are using the same one of a kind course.  We know of no other course like it  As the name implies, the course is in the shape of a cross, perfect for those who are not a fan of "out and back" courses and for those who like to use apps and gps trackers to create unique maps.   

We do prohibit roller blades & pets.  There will be a post race party as always.  This year's party is still being planned, but anticipate breakfast! All included with the price of your registration.

If there is an interest, an early packet pickup will be scheduled.

Early registration ends on June 1 2019.

ALL PRE-REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS ARE GUARANTEED A T-SHIRT.  Those who register, or who's registrations are RECEIVED after June 1 will NOT be guaranteed a race shirt.

Awards will be given to the overall male and female runners in the timed races and to the top three runners in each age group.  

Team Challenge Announcement:   Largest overall team in all events will win $100 cash.  Largest Knights of Columbus Team will receive $100 cash.  The traveling trophies will also be awarded.  

FASTEST TEAMS AWARDS!  The top 5 racers on each team will be scored.  Teams may be co-ed as the team desires.  The fastest teams in the 5 and 10 K races will receive a trophy and $50 cash.  Minimum of 5 racers per event to qualify.

Please stay for the awards ceremony. 

You must be present to win a door prize and no award, medal or trophy will be mailed.  We encourage you to stay and socialize with old friends and make new ones.  

The race will go forward, rain or shine.  Lightning may make us wait.  No refunds!

We look forward to seeing you there!

7:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
