Hosted by Clarksburg Church

Race Day is November 23, 2019


We are so excited to host the 8th annual, family-friendly, 5K Orchard Run at Butler’s Orchard located in Germantown, MD. This race, previously known in the community as the Campus Life 5k Orchard Run hosted by Campus Life was specifically created to benefit students in the Clarksburg, Germantown, Gaithersburg, and Damascus area. As the new hosts, we plan to uphold the focus of supporting local students, groups, and organizations.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to four organizations – Campus Life, Jobs Partnership, PURE Youth, and The Little Free Pantry. The purpose of each group is to enrich the lives of others – near or far. In schools, or India, the local jail, or locals who need a little food support. Each group will receive donations based on the number of runners who choose their group at the time of registration.
