Cardinal 5K Run

The Cardinal 5K and 1/2 mile Kids Run/Walk takes place in the fall each year.  Participants gather at Holy Redeemer Church parking lot on the day of the race.  Hundreds of runners of all ages embrace the brisk fall weather to enjoy a scenic run through Rock Creek Park and the Rock Creek Highlands neighborhood.  The course also challenges runners to accomplish "the Hill" on Cedar Lane before turning back into the Holy Redeemer neighborhood.  Just after the 5K runners depart, a 1/2 mile race will be held for the smaller kids.  In this race, all kids are winners as each Fun Run Finisher receives a medal.  The event benefits Holy Redeemer School, our Catholic Parochial co-educational school, grades Kindergarten through 8.  There is a post-race party including food and refreshments with entertainment for the whole family.  Sponsors generously support this program each year.  Specific date and time, contact information for the event and a call for sponsors are published each year in early fall in the church bulletin.  For additional information, please contact Andrea or Mike Heyl at or visit
