Our 2023 route has been updated to include the start and finish line at Factory 52, a new mixed-use development where the race after party is being held. Norwood's Presidential District as well as the Wasson Way Trail are still featured throughout the Gem's 5K route.
IMPORTANT RACE INFO
MORE THAN A 5K
This is a celebration of everything that makes Norwood a true gem! Join your neighbors on November 4, 2023 to run or walk through some of our favorite streets in the beautiful presidential district of Norwood.vSponsorships help fund the race, along with improvements across Norwood Park System. To date, we've donated nearly $70K and hope to raise over $50K this year to increase community impact. 100% of proceeds will always go back to municipal needs and initiatives that benefit the community, with a focus on Norwood parks. Gem of the Highlands 5K first project was $16,000 to the basketball court restoration at Waterworks Park.
