Description

This will be a first annual event hosted by the Grant Playground and Recreation Association that will take place at Grant City Park located at 401 Park Rd. This event is held in memory of the late Dan Robinson whose love for God and country was known by many throughout our community. Dan was instrumental in the formation of our non-profit organization and laid the groundwork for the development of Kidtopia playground. The proceeds from this event will benefit Kidtopia and help support it's continued needs.

The 5K Race: This is a USTAF certified 5K walk/run and will begin at Grant City Park, travel through the scenic, mountain town of Grant and pass by New Life Methodist Church. The course is mostly flat with a few inclines. Volunteers will be along the route to help guide runners in the right direction. Water stations will be set up approximately every mile and a first aid station will be available near the halfway point. The race will end back at Grant City Park in front of Kidtopia playground. Rehydration & nutritious snacks will be available before and after the races. See below for award category details.
