Nun Run 5K, Brother Boogie 10K is May 25

Posted: Friday, April 26, 2019

The Nun Run 5K and Brother Boogie 10K will take place Saturday, May 25 at 9:15 a.m. The race begins and ends at St. Felix Oratory, 1280 Hitzfield Street, and is approximately 5K and 10K combination road and trail, run or walk. This is the ninth year for the event.

The unique course is competitive and scenic for competitive runners as well as casual walkers. Most of the course is on roads, but two sections of the course traverse through the serene nature of Memorial Park and the Nature Preserve on the grounds of Our Lady of Victory Missionary Sisters. The well-manicured trails distinguish the Nun Run from other 5K runs.

For those looking for more, the Brother Boogie 10K will take the runner through the quaint north side neighborhoods of Huntington before picking up the trails and roads of the 5K run. What started as a casual run has now grown in to a Memorial Day weekend must. The Nun Run/Brother Boogie has brought in hundreds of runners from over 20 states near and far.

Proceeds in the past have benefited the Victory Noll Center, St. Felix Oratory, Huntington Catholic Booster Club and the Rob Mayo Scholarship. Register online at
