4-H 4 Mile Hustle logo

The 2016 4-H 4 Mile Hustle Run & Walk and Kids' Fun Run will be held on Saturday, July 23rd at the Porter County Fair. Online sign-up is now live at http://www.thtiming.com/upcomingraces.html. Paper registration forms can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. 

Without our dedicated sponsors, we can't make this event happen. The support of sponsors allows us to have a quality event for our participants and for the 4-H Junior Leaders to raise funds to assist with community service efforts. If you or your business would like to sponsor, or know someone else who might, please download the sponsorship form that can be found at the bottom of this page.
