FHS Watermelon Run

The Fremont High School Watermelon Run is a tradition dating back to the early 1980s, when it started as an event for the cross country team. The annual Watermelon Run has since grown from a modest 50 participants to more than 500 in recent years. The 2-mile dash is open to the public, and people of all running skill levels participate each year. A trophy watermelon is awarded to the fastest runners in a number of categories, which include teachers, staff members, alumni and students by grade level. All participants are able to enjoy fresh watermelon at the end of the event.
