The Emmitsburg Heritage Day event will be welcoming the addition of a 6K Race in 2018. Lace up your sneakers and hit the road on Saturday, June 30, 2018, for the Inaugural Emmitsburg Community Heritage Day 6K Race. Beat the heat with an early start at 7:30 a.m. on this 6K (3.7 mile) course.  The race begins at the Emmitsburg Community Center on South Seton Avenue and meanders through the rolling outskirts of town, finishing at the Community Park, where the Community Heritage Day festivities will take place. Don’t forget those furry, four-legged friends who have faithfully run by your side. Register your dog to run with you and receive a special bandana for it to wear proudly. The race is open to young and old alike, and promotes good, healthy competition for walkers and runners. Awards will be given to the top overall male and female runner, as well as medals to the top three finishers in each age group category.
