The 5K Run for Home and Workboot Challenge was created over 20 years ago by Habitat CFC Co-Founder John Olson and has been one of our main events over the years.

The Habitat CFC 5K Run is presented by Wells Fargo Advisors and is in partnership with WEBE 108 and WICC 600.

The fast and flat course makes the 5K Run the perfect opportunity for serious runners to set personal records and all abilities to enjoy our scenic course (walkers are welcome). The Workboot Challenge is a one mile event prior to the 5K and offers participants the challenge of wearing workboots (or ANY boots) on a shorter course. This race is produced in association with Marty Schaivone – M.S. Running Productions. Register early for discounted tickets:
