Join us for the 2021 Springdale 5K Race on Saturday, September 11th, 2021!  This certified and officially timed race starts at 8am on the grounds of the Historic Springdale Race Course and the National Steeplechase Museum!  Finish strong at the gates of the Carolina Cup! Runners and Walkers are welcome! Race proceeds benefit the Health and Hunger initiatives in Kershaw County that are operated by the United Way of Kershaw County! Created in 2017, the Mobile Nutrition Center (MNC) is a mobile food pantry that delivers healthy foods to various sites in food deserts located in rural Kershaw County, SC. The MNC directly serves clients by removing barriers that prevent access to food like transportation and income. Through community partnerships, MNC delivers farm fresh, store-bought and even rescued food and grocery products like vegetables, meats, whole pastas and rice, and baked goods to food insecure people. Help support the Mobile Nutrition Center by bringing in a donation from our needs list to packet pick up or on race day!  Look for the BIG DONATION BOX!  Our needs list can be found below!

The course will have three water stops and lots of friendly volunteers to guide and cheer you on the the finish line! Your registration includes a quality Springdale 5K Shirt, FREE Waffles with all the fixings at the finish line, and a Bounce House for the kids!
