It all started…

Eight years ago when Campus Life began a race to raise money for students to build meaningful relationships with mentors. If you are a previous racer, you know this race as the Campus Life 5k Orchard Run.


100% of the proceeds for the race will still be donated to life-changing organizations. This year, four local groups who have a vision, a plan, and a following to make their corner of the world, locally or globally, better have been chosen. When registering to race, you will be asked which group you like like to support. The proceeds from your race registration will go directly to that organization.

A Trail Run and kids Fun Run


The 5k course has a little bit of everything for every age: Gravel farm roads, beautiful scenery, rolling hills, a section through the woods...this is a unique opportunity to run a safe, family-friendly trail race through Butler's Orchard's amazing property. Don't miss out! Bring the entire family! 

Depending on your child’s running-ability, they can choose instead to run in the kids fun run that will start at 10:00 a.m.

All 5k participants will receive the famous and comfortable long sleeve shirt with their race packet. Prizes will be awarded based on gender and age specific brackets. Immediately following the 5k race, we will line up kids and families for the FREE family / kids fun run. The "course" is about a quarter mile and is suitable for all ages. We would love for you to join us as a family for this memorable event!
