Larry "LJ" Haines Memorial Mohigan 5K and Obstacle Challenge

Sat November 2, 2019



We are back where it all started! On the M at Morgantown High School!


I am thrilled to announce that the 5th annual Larry "LJ" Haines Mohigan 5K  and Obstacle Challenge is ready to accept registrations!!  

We will be at Morgantown High School and the Obstacle Course will be making its return bigger and better than ever!!  We will also have team pricing again this year which is a great way for any group, family or club to run together and support each other and the athletes.  In order to receive the discounted price (17.00), teams must have a minimum of 5 runners. 

In our inaugural race, we raised over $ 2,500!  The 2016 race made over $4,400!!  Last year, even with the venue change we were able to make over $7,000! 

This years goal is $10,000 and 150 runners.  Start spreading the word and lets work to give our student-athletes the support that they need and deserve!

The Larry "LJ" Haines Memorial Mohigan 5K is a fundraiser that was created to help the Morgantown High School Athletic Boosters raise funds to support all the MHS athletic teams.  The money will help provide equipment, uniforms, travel, food, hotel stays other expenses for our 20 + athletic teams. 

Again we will have age group awards for men and women as well as overall winners. The participants in the obstacle challenge will receive an award and treat bag.  

Pre-registration is 20.00 and all who pre-register receive an event t-shirt. Race day registration is 25.00 and shirts are first come, first serve. The race starts a 10:00 with race day registration from 8:00-9:30. For more information please e-mail Brenda Lawrence at  The entry fee for the Fun run is 5.00 per family either pre-registered or day of, and each child will receive a treat bag. 

The race will start at the M at the center of the football field and will pass through beautiful, historic South Park and White Park.  Runners will make the turn at the BOPARC Ice arena and will return by the same route, with a small variation at the end.  The Obstacle course is for kids 12 and younger and will be on the football field.

The Obstacle Course is designed to challenge our little Mohigans with speed, balance, climbing, throwing accuracy, and more.  It will be on the field and will take place during 5K.  This event is for ages 12 and under.
