Gordon Memorial 5k/Family Fun Walk is organized as part of our annual Good Neighbor Days Event. In 2014 one of our runners coined The Gordon Memorial 5K "small-town race with big-time heart!" The course is run exclusively by volunteers.
The 5k terrain is challenging and we do not recommend strollers. Please be aware some of the course is sand, some is gravel and some is blacktop. We offer 2 water stations throughout and bottled water at the end of the race. Some great features include plenty of parking, runner bag pickup is easy & quick with lots of cool stuff in them, online registration is incredibly convenient, the race is chip timed and runners registered before June 5th are guaranteed a shirt. Last year shirts were sized a little large. We are going with similar shirts, however that is not a guarantee they will be sized the same.
Gordon Memorial Family Fun Walk. Bring the Kids! Bring the Strollers! We are working on updating the course this year. This walk is not timed. Register BEFORE June 5th to be guaranteed a shirt! We will kick off the 5k @ 8:05 as usual & we will kick off the Family fun walk at 8:15.
Gordon Good Neighbor Days has several events Including mud volleyball, duck races, world-class fireworks, Parade, 2 nights of "street" dances, flea market and more! Plenty of fun for the whole family!
