Participation Fee

The participation fee for St. Francis families is a donation of $100.00 per family. The donation may be paid through sponsorship’s or made as a family donation. A family donation will entitle all immediate family members (parents and siblings) of our students to participate in the race. All other registrants, including members of your extended families and other community members, will be required to pay the registration fee.


Registration & Fees

Pre-registration is now open online. Race day registration will take place at the WVU Rec Center beginning at 8:00 a.m. Those registered in the 5K will also be registered to participate in the 1 mile run/walk if desired.

School families will receive a 100% registration discount. Each school family will be assigned a coupon code number to be used for the online registration. Your family coupon code can be used only one time. To avoid being charged the per person registration fee, you must register all members of your immediate family participating in the event at the same time. 

Family discount codes are located on the letter sent home. If you are having trouble finding your Family Coupon Code, please call the school office at 304.291.5070.


Donations & Sponsorship’s

Families have the ability to create their own race web pages from the race link in which you can receive donations and/or sponsorship’s, set donation goals, send personal messages to family and friends and add photographs.

Donation forms will also be available to download from the school website in the event you prefer to solicit donations in person as opposed to online.



Make a direct donation to the school or in honor of a specific student.


School families, have your coupon code ready (ex. SFCC###). Codes may only be used once. Register all participating immediate family at one time.
