The Howard County Family Wellness Day and the Matzohball 5K are bringing our community together to make wellness a priority. COVID will not stop us on Sunday, June 6, 2021, from putting on our running shoes, stepping outside and being together in spirt for the 17th Annual Matzohball 5K! On that day, even though we are virtual, we will be together, running, walking, making our health and the health of our community a priority!

In addition to offering both the Matzohball 5K run/walk and 1 Mile run at no cost to participants, 100% of all donations made through the sign-up registration process on the race website will go to the following three charities: Grass Roots, Dream Builders and Hope Works (over $50,000 donated to date). You can walk or run your own personal 5K or 1 mile course anywhere; all we ask is that you continue to maintain safe physical distancing as you run.

Track your time using a FitBit, Apple Watch, running app, or any way you want, and even upload your results to be posted on our site! You can also use the RaceJoy app to enhance your experience with real time tracking and cheers! We hope that you will join us for all of the fun beginning with our opening ceremony, live on zoom, at 8:30am that morning. But you can choose to run or walk any day or time, starting with the 9am official start on Sunday, June 6th right up through the following Sunday, June 13th.
