Are you Happy in Memphis? Harding Academy is, and we invite you to help celebrate our city! On Saturday, November 18, 2017 Harding Academy will host the Happy in Memphis 5K, a reimagined version of a 14 - year Harding tradition. Participants will enjoy a 5K course designed by Start2Finish Event Management which will take runners by notable Memphis landmarks such as Elvis’s house bought in 1956 with royalties from “Heartbreak Hotel,” Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Audubon Park, and Memphis Botanic Gardens.

Race participants are encouraged to dress to reflect what makes them Happy in Memphis. Whether it is the King of Rock and Roll or Jerry the King Lawler, the Grizzlies or the Tigers, the BBQ or the music, we want them to celebrate why they Choose 901!


About Harding Academy

Founded in 1952 in the heart of east Memphis, Harding Academy is a Christ-centered, coeducational, college-preparatory school serving 1000+ students from age 2 through grade 12 on three campuses throughout the city. After considering a move, Harding Academy’s Board of Trustees committed in 2012 to stay in Memphis and embarked on a multi-year plan to significantly renovate and expand the Cherry Road campus.
