5th Annual Hilton Hustle and 1 Mile Fun Run

  • Hilton Elementary School 225 River Road Newport News (map)

In celebration of Hilton Elementary's 99th year, we encourage you to put together your best costume or running attire and take a run through Historic Hilton Village. You can do this as a team or individual - just be creative. There will be a contest for our runners so make sure to dress up to win some great prizes! The categories will be: 

  • Best Costume 

  • Craziest Socks 

  • Wildest Tutu 

  • Most Creative Costume 

Prizes will also be awarded for the top 3 female and 3 top male in each age bracket. Both race courses will begin and end at Hilton Elementary. They will weave throughout the Historic Hilton Village and adjacent neighborhoods giving scenic views of the James River. Please visit for more details!
