Hop Festival: Fun Run will benefit sound system at North Marion Primary School
Start off the Hop Festival right with the Hop Fest Fun Run.
Pre-register online by the end of the day Thursday.
The 5K and 10K both start at 8 a.m. Cost for either the 5K or the 10K is $20, or $10 for ages 14 and under. Awards will be handed out for top male and female finishers in both the 10K and the 5K.
Following the 5K and 10K at 9 a.m. will be the Kids 1K (which is not timed). This event does not have a race fee, but registration by the end of the day Thursday is still required.

Keep up to the tempo kept by a DJ and check out your time at one of the kiosks for Huber Timing Services.
Funds from this year's run will go toward purchasing a new sound system for North Marion Primary School.
"The existing system at the primary school has a sound system installed but with components that all compete with each other," explained organizer Nichole Parent. "And they have one microphone and they have regular sound speakers but they're competing with digital."
