HST Run for the Son | 5K
The 18th annual Run for the Son 5K is a light-hearted, family-friendly race – timed for serious runners (non-chipped) – but open to everyone, including virtual participants. There is even a t-shirt only option for those who want to support HST students but are unable to participate in the run or walk. The inclusion of a 1.5 mile walk and simple activities for children add to the festive atmosphere. The race begins and ends on Harding School of Theology’s campus at 1000 Cherry Road, taking runners and walkers through the beautiful surrounding neighborhood in the heart of East Memphis. The backdrop of the event is the historic mansion on the HST campus which was once part of E. L. King’s estate (circa 1933). Mansion tours available after the race.

Help Underwrite the Race
Run for the Son is an annual event that benefits the HST Fund, making graduate theological education more affordable for our students. Historically, local businesses have provided the bulk of the funds raised in the event and we proudly display their name and logo on the race shirts each year.
Would you consider adding your business to this year’s group of underwriters? HST has added new incentives in 2019 to encourage your participation! You may choose from among three levels of support:
BRONZE ($250): Bronze underwriters will receive a breakfast burrito from the on-site food truck. AND we light a candle in your honor.
SILVER ($500): Silver underwriters will receive two breakfast burritos from the on-site food truck, plus use of Ford pickup on a day of their choosing. AND we light a candle in your honor.
GOLD ($1,000+): Gold underwriters will receive as many breakfast burritos as they can carry, plus use of a retro Ford Thunderbird convertible on a day of their choosing. AND we light a candle in your honor.
Non-local underwriters will receive breakfast burritos from a food truck of their choosing – vehicle use and candles negotiable. All underwriters will receive a 2019 HST 5k t-shirt. Silver and Gold underwriters have the option to add their name and company logo to the run t-shirt. (Underwriter must be registered by March 15.)
