Exercise! Get up and move. You are about to be apart of the Cardinal 5k
About our 14th Annual Event
The 2019 Cardinal 5K Race and 1/2 Mile Fun Run will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019. The 5K race begins at 8:30 am at Holy Redeemer School and takes runners through beautiful Rock Creek Park. For the younger kids, there is a 1/2 Mile Fun Run! All Fun Runners will earn a finisher’s medal. After the race, all participants and their families are invited to attend a post-race carnival. Kids of all ages will enjoy a moon bounce, a rock climbing wall and more! Proceeds benefit Holy Redeemer School.
Gone are the days when runners have to affix a chip or sticker tag to their laces. The Cardinal 5K will introduce the new ChronoTrack B-Tag timing technology at this year's event. The system utilizes a light-weight disposable UHF RFID tag that runners will find attached to the reverse side of the bib. No action is required of the runner beyond simply wearing the bib. The B-tag will record each runner's official time, beginning when the start line is crossed and concluding when the finish line is reached. Holy Redeemer School, located in Kensington, Maryland, is a Catholic, Parochial, co-educational school for grades Kindergarten through 8.
