The Cardinal 5K and 1/2 Mile Kids Fun Run/Walk takes place in the spring each year. Participants gather at the Holy Redeemer Church parking lot on the day of the race. Hundreds of runners of all ages embrace the refreshing spring weather to enjoy a scenic run through Rock Creek Park and the Rock Creek Highlands neighborhood. The course also challenges runners to accomplish "the Hill" on Cedar Lane before turning back into the Holy Redeemer neighborhood.

Just after the 5K runners depart, a 1/2 mile race will be held for the younger runners, where all kids are winners and receive a medal! After the races, join us in the church parking lot for a post-race party including refreshments and entertainment for the whole family.

All of the events benefit Holy Redeemer School, our Catholic Parochial co-educational school, grades Kindergarten through 8.
