Let’s Hit the 2019-2020 School Year Running!

No false starts among the great people of Charter Oak. The 6 th Annual Oak
Tree Challenge 5K/1 Mile Run/Walk is Saturday, September 28, at Charter
Oak High School. Registration is now open online at:
charteroakedfoundation.org and online registration is recommended.

Check in on the day of the event opens bright and early at 7:00am. Each pre-registered runner will receive a T-Shirt. Registrations must be received by September 18, 2019 in order to receive a Run T- Shirt. All registered runners will receive a bib number, an opportunity drawing ticket, a runner swag bag, and enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast. The 5K Run/Walk will begin
promptly at 8:00am, and the 1 Mile Run/Walk begins at 9:00am.

Breakfast is at 8:00, and is free for all runners/walkers. Breakfast is available to spectators for only $5.

We are challenging all Charter Oak faculty, staff, campus PTAs, and school clubs to form a running club on your campus and train together! Which of our Charter Oak schools will have the greatest show of participation?

Serious runners, we are happy to announce that we have electronic chip timing and the Run is on all hard surfaces!!

Not a runner or walker? No problem! The vendor booths will be making a return for all to peruse and shop. Cheer from the stands, and pose for the camera! This is a fun way to show school pride.

Be the Match will be joining us to do cheek swabs to look for that match for Coach Lou Farrar and anyone else that might be in need of a stem cell match.

This is a family event, and we are all here for the kids. To encourage our students to get out and move, participation medals are given to youth only who complete in the 1 Mile Run/Walk.

1 st , 2 nd and 3 rd place winners in each age category both male and female in the 5K will receive medals, and the male and female who comes in 1 st overall will receive 1 st place overall plaques.

The Oak Tree Challenge is hosted by the Charter Oak Education Foundation. It gives us a wonderful opportunity to begin the 2019-2020 school year with a running start, while coming together as a community to raise money for our Charter Oak schools. Last year, our Oak Tree Challenge participants and partners raised $10,000! Let’s surpass that milestone! Register today!
