The Heartbreak Hill 5k is a 3.1 mile run/walk that takes place on the Hagerstown High School cross country course. This race is one in a series of 8 races that make up the Wayne County Challenge. Each race within the challenge raises money for a charity of their choice and helps promote healthy living and fitness in Wayne County. This race not only attracts members of Wayne County's running/walking community, but also members from the surrounding counties as well. All proceeds from the Heartbreak Hill 5k will go to the Hagerstown High School Athletic Department’s cross country program and the Hagerstown Athletic Hall of Fame.
