About this Race
The Hope Starts Here 5K is a great race for runners looking for a route steeped in Jacksonville history and benefitting an amazing cause. A lovely trek through the Emerald Trail that begins and ends at Operation New Hope – housed in one of Springfield’s most iconic buildings – the Hope Starts Here 5K helps Jacksonville build safer communities, stronger economies, and more stable families. Hope Starts Here 5K shirts will be given to all participants, and custom designed finisher medals will be presented to all 1 Mile and 5K finishers at the finish line.

The proceeds from the Hope Starts Here 5k will benefit Operation New Hope. At Operation New Hope, we believe that we are all better than our worst mistake, worst day, or worst decision. We believe in people’s ability to learn from their errors and transform their lives through commitment and hard work. For over 20 years, we have worked to build a stronger community by creating opportunities for people with a criminal history to realize second chances by reconnecting to the workforce. Funds raised will be used to provide workforce training, mental health services, and job placement for people affected by the criminal justice system.
