Heron Hustle 5K & Pickleball Tournament
Whether you prefer to sweat it out on the course or on the courts, come join us for our Heron Hustle 5k and Pickleball tournament to raise funds for the Heron Annual Fund. The Heron Hustle 5K/1 Mile Fun Run and Pickleball Tournament will take place on Gunston's waterfront campus.
If you're lacing up your running shoes and hitting the pavement you'll enjoy running/walking along our beautiful waterfront campus and recently acquired terrain. This is an in-person event, but don't worry, if you're unable to attend, you can still participate! (You just won't be eligible for prizes) Just indicate "virtual" on the sign-up form and we will mail you your t-shirt.
If you're raising your paddles while trying to stay out of the kitchen, you'll enjoy the courts in our Field House. Teams of 2 (doubles) are encouraged, but not necessary. Our coaches will make sure you're paired up with someone. More information will be provided prior to the event date.
