Matt’s 5K Pursuit

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

$27 – $30

Every April, we remember Matt Haverkamp during the month of his birthday and support Matt’s legacy with a 5K run / walk. Matt’s 5K Pursuit is held on the beautiful grounds of Spring Grove Cemetery – the perfect setting for quiet reflection and bringing together so many people in remembrance of Matt. All proceeds from Matt’s 5K Pursuit benefit The Matt Haverkamp Foundation, which helps support local police departments in and around the greater Cincinnati area by purchasing K9s and law enforcement equipment for them.

This year will mark the NINETEENTH year for the annual Matt’s 5K Pursuit. This year’s 5K will be held on Sunday, April 14, 2024 at Spring Grove Cemetery. The race will begin at 9:00 AM with sign-in and T-shirt and race bib pick up beforehand from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM. After the 5K, stay with us throughout the morning for K9 demonstrations, refreshments, a silent auction, and the presentation of awards to the top chip-timed finishers. Awards for Race Runners will be presented to the top 3 men and top 3 women in each division. Awards for Race Walkers will be presented to the top 3 men and women overall. No awards will be presented to non Fun Walkers or Virtual Participants.
