The Make a Joyful Noise 5K will take place on September 15, 2018 at 8:30 am at New Life Christian Church, 1505 Rd 175 in Emporia. Make a Joyful Noise 5K is Emporia’s only worship 5K!  This event is perfect for people from all fitness levels.  Those who enjoy leisurely nature walks will enjoy the breathtaking scenic views on the country course.  Runners who crave some challenge will enjoy the elevation changes and all terrain aspect of the course.  As runners and walkers complete the beautiful scenic course, they will encounter others worshipping God in song.  This is an excellent opportunity to come together in unity to fellowship and worship God in the beauty of His creation!


Proceeds from this year’s race will be donated to the worship team ministry at New Life Christian Church.  Funds will be used to purchase necessary equipment and to provide training for worship teams in the area.  Part of the proceeds will also go to help replenish the Blessing Boxes in our community.


All participants will receive a running bib with a time chip, a custom t-shirt, and finisher medal (at the finish line). We will also have placement medals for our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female finishers. We will do our best to have t-shirts available for registrants who sign up after the August 30 deadline, but in the event that we run out, we will order and they will be available for pick up at a later date.


Registration can be done via paper form, which can be found at the Emporia Rec or on the Make a Joyful Noise 5K Facebook page or online at
