Sign up today for the annual New Market STRONG 5k Fighter Run/Walk!  This event is to honor Karen Durbin who served New Market as Town Clerk for over 14 years and was a friend to many in Town. After a long battle with breast cancer, Karen passed away in November 2020. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness to fight breast cancer. 


Join us Sunday, October 6th, when you and fellow fighters will run/walk/stroll a 3.1 mile course through the historic town of New Market and adjacent neighborhoods. For our competitors, this race will be officially timed by Racine MulitSports. This event is family and dog friendly; all ages and abilities are welcome! Want to bring Fido with you?? Sure! Just make sure he has a leash on.


You can sign up and raise money as a TEAM in honor or support of a loved one battling breast cancer. In addition to prizes for individual winners, we'll have prizes for the team with the most members, most funds raised and most spirit on race day. So gather your pals, think of a fun team theme and raise funds to fight cancer together!
