Run, Walk, or Volunteer​

Participating in one of the many Brooksie Way activities or races, such as the HAP Brooksie Way Half Marathon, the Brooksie Way 10k, 5k or Fun Run, is fulfilling for all ages. Whether you run, jog or walk, the journey to crossing the finish line can be a life changing one. And if running isn't for you, volunteers are always needed to ke​ep the events running smoothly.
