“The Unicorn was so brightly white that it made the snow all around look grey. It was pawing the ground nervously with its golden hooves, and throwing back its horned head.”

Potterhead Running Club is pleased to present the sixth event of the 2021 season:

The Forbidden 5k!

Your $27 registration donation includes this beautiful 3″ medal featuring the most majestic and dearly protected of magical creatures!

As with every PHRC event, all registrants also receive the beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and the always-popular personalized digital participation bib.

“Heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. A quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever; a happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.” — Peter S. Beagle

Unicorns are the innocent, the pure, and the most deserving of protection, and the centaurs of the Forbidden Forest worked to defend them just beyond the school grounds…literally the school’s “backyard.” It’s in this spirit that our charity partner for the Forbidden 5k is IN OUR BACKYARD.

In Our Backyard is known for posting ‘Freedom Stickers’ in every state across America. Over 500,000 of these stickers to date have helped create access to freedom for victims and survivors of human trafficking. They display the National Human Trafficking hotline, and are strategically posted in public restrooms nationwide. When a trafficking survivor calls or texts this hotline, they are offered hope and help.

Our support through this event will help In Our Backyard place thousands upon thousands of Freedom Stickers in communities around the country, letting victims of human trafficking know that help is within reach.
