Event details and schedule
Race participants can choose between a professionally timed 5k run or a one-mile Fun Run option. This fun event is perfect for seasoned runners, families or those who just want to raise funds for those in need. Children under 18 can do the Fun Run for free! Every one who participates will receive a dry-fit T-shirt and a swag bag of goodies from our sponsors.
This year, runners can give even more to serve hungry people by choosing the Silver or Gold level registration and receive a special gift from GHR.
