Welcome back to the 2023 Olmsted Spirit 5k! Since 1998 the Olmsted Spirit 5k Run/Walk has been part of the Olmsted Community and we are happy to be back in person for our 25th year! Race Proceeds will benefit our Olmsted Spirit Scholarship and Community Fund! This year we have added a 1 mile run and Team Series to our annual event!
To bring together the Olmsted and surrounding communities for a fun morning of physical activity. We will continue our duel fundraising goal we started in 2021 to raise funds for scholarships for OFHS graduating seniors who gave back to their community and local small businesses who give back to the Olmsted Community. The proceeds raised from this event will be split 50/50 between the scholarships and small business fund. Together, we will make a difference for this amazing Olmsted Community!

(Example: Team X’s five runners finished 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 10th. Their team score would be 24. Team Z’s five runners finished 1st, 3rd, 12th, and 13th. Their team score would be 29. Team X would finish ahead of team Z because their cumulative score is lower than Team Z.).
