The Essex North Shore 5K event is designed to bring all members of the community; students, alumni, parents, supporters, and neighbors, together to have fun while raising funds to support the Senior Class and Student Scholarships. This is one event in a weekend-long series of homecoming events. 


Come run the same course that our State Vocational Championship Cross Country Men and Women's teams run annually as part of our comprehensive Athletic programs.  This course is considered a moderately challenging, scenic run on trails both paved and gravel, through our agricultural lands, hills, and pastures. The entire course is self-contained requiring no street travel in the community. Course Map
