Fun Run LogoThis year’s Hillsborough Fun Run took place on Sunday, May 20th, 2018. The Fun Run was held at North Hillsborough Elementary, and consisted of three races: the 2K Lakas Shimizu Memorial Walk/Run, the 5K Run/Walk, and the 10K Challenge. All levels of participants were welcome. After the run, families and friends gathered on the school field to enjoy a pancake breakfast, fun field activities, and an awards ceremony. Medals were given to the top 3 male and female finishers in specified age divisions. It was a great time to exercise, celebrate the end of the school year, and support our Hillsborough public schools!
