These are the three words often used to describe the Southeastern Health 5K. Starting in downtown Lumberton, the course makes it way through tree-lined streets, historic homes and of course the Lumber River before finishing at the plaza. However, be careful, the final long stretch down Elm Street has been called a “nightmare” (just kidding…but it is tough). The 5k race begins at 11:00AM.


Not only do all winners receive awards that are original pieces of artwork, but there is a lot of money up for grabs in the overall, masters and grandmasters categories.

The day gets started with the Southeastern Health Family Fun Mile. This is a FREE event open to the entire family. Over the years it has continued to grow and we often see over 1,000 children lining up at the start and finishing with a smile. The Family Fun Mile begins at 10:00AM

Of course, the Rumba is much more than a couple of races. It is also a festival featuring tons of food and the Bud Light Chili Cook-off, one of the largest in North Carolina. In addition, the whole family will enjoy the FREE Lumbee River EMC Kid Zone to enjoy the entire afternoon.

We love animals, but please your animals at home!
