Kids' Fun Run
The 1 mile kids' fun run is for those children wanting to run but can't quite finish a 5k yet. Participants will run with high school students and will always be supervised along their route. All participants will receive a medal and t-shirt.
Feel like running but don't know what to do with your kids? Bring them and let us watch them while you run! Our students (with adult supervision) will play games and do projects with them in the GACC gym until you finish. All you'll need to do is let us know at check-in.
Breakfast and Awards
After the race, breakfast will be served in the GACC cafeteria for all runners. Breakfast is included with your registration fee. Once everyone is finished with the race, we will present awards.
If you are with someone who did not register to run but wishes to eat, we will have a free-will offering for the breakfast.
