Is Going Virtual for 2020!

Northpointe Council appreciates all who have participated in the Jack O'Lantern 5K for the past 22 years. All proceeds from this annual race enable the Council to provide high-quality, person centered prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery to those affected by substance use disorders and other addictions for adults and youth in our community. Due to COVID 19, and concern for your safety, this year's race is going virtual. Register anytime up until 10/17/20. From October 10th through October 24th, you get to choose when and where you will run 5K or walk 1.5 miles. Keep track of your finish time (optional) and update your finish time on this site through October 31st. Better yet, download the free IYR Mobile Virtual Race App and let it track your run for you!
