- 3 miles/5K
- Road Race
The Hustle For Henne is an inaugural race put on in 2017. It is a 5K that is in support of addiction awareness, so a race to help a great cause.
It is held at Andrew Evans Park in Chester Springs, PA. Not being familiar with the location it was very new for me. Overall the 5K was a lot of fun as it was held for a good cause, but also because of the course. With only being 3.1 miles 5K courses tend to not offer a lot. But not only did the Hustle For Henne 5K course offer great sites and sounds (the course winded back and forth through active farms) it also allowed for a few challenging hills. At times during the course the elevation changed pretty steadily to offer runners a challenge versus a flatter course.
The organizers also mapped out the course to finish on a grassy trail area. This wasn't a long stretch of path, but it did break up the course from being 100% on the road which I found interesting. Post race every runner was greeted with water, pretzels, home made cookies, bananas and so much more. While this race was put on to support a good cause, it was great to see the organizers make sure runners (and walkers) were taken care of post race.
Overall there are a lot of 5K's to choose from. However the fact that the Hustle For Henne went to a good cause, while also offering a unique course, makes this race a great one to choose to run. This was a walker friendly race as well, so a great event for the family. I hope they put it on again in 2018.
