The 7th Annual Fox84 Initiative 5K Fun Run/Walk

Marion, SC


The 7th Annual Fox84 Initiative 5K Fun Run
On Saturday, May 06, 2023, The Fox84 Initiative for Boys will host its 7th Annual Fox84 Initiative 5K FunRun/Walk. This fundraising event is designed to raise money to take young men of Marion County on an exploration trip. We believe that these annual exploration trips will inspire initiative and prove to be an invaluable contribution to their personal development.


This Race is RAIN or SHINE:
The 7th Annual Fox84 Initiative 5K fun run/walk will take participants on a scenic route through Marion, South Carolina. The race will start at Marion High School/ Green Street. Participants will proceed down Green Street, passing the National Guard Armory and continuing onto Gurley Street, passing Johnakin Middle School and Grice's Recreation Center. Runners then turn left onto Liberty Street, bypassing several iconic landmarks and buildings. Runners will then turn left onto Bobby L. Davis Boulevard, proceed past St. John's Church, and turn left on Martin Luther King Blvd. As participants bypass the Door of Hope Christian Church, turning right onto Main Street for 200 yards, the runners will turn onto Green Street and end back in front of Marion High School for the finish.
