The Fastest 5K Race Course In New England
The Hollis Fast 5K race offers you a chance to run a personal best time for a 5K distance. Experience our USA Track & Field certified 5K gradual downhill course that winds through the center of Hollis, New Hampshire. All proceeds to this Rotary fundraising event will go towards local charities, teacher grants, scholarships and other worthy charitable causes.
The Hollis Fast 5K race features a unique and scenic course that drops 224 feet from start to finish. The distance is certified by the USA Track & Field, but because it drops more than one meter per kilometer, official state and national records do not count. If you beat your state age record for our individual age, you will receive a waived entry into the 2016 race.
This event features some of the area’s top runners and has received rave reviews from national publications including the “Wall Street Journal” and “Running Times Magazine”. The course is blazing fast. In the first eight years through 2012, 33 state age group records have been broken. In our 2013 race, 73 people beat the New Hampshire State Record! The Hollis Fast 5K has been named one of the fastest 5k races in America and the fastest 5K in New England.
