Running the Ridge HOME RUN HERO is a 5K that takes place in beautiful Blue Ridge GA. We will also be hosting a 1 mile Family Fun Run.  All proceeds will go to benefit the "Steve Roath Cancer Fund" and we will also make a 10% donation "In Memory of Steve Roath" to the Fannin County School System's Children's Fund.  

Steve Roath was a founding pastor at The Ridge Community Church who lost his battle with cancer in 2018.  Steve lived to help others and was troubled in his final days with the realization that he would not be here to provide for his wife Tiffany who is currently re-establishing her business and their daughter Cassidy and their son Payton who are still in school.  Our desire is to honor Steve by committing to a 3-year plan to help meet those financial needs as his family is restructuring their lives without him.  Steve was definitely a HOME RUN HERO, and because of his love for baseball (specifically the GIANTS), this year's theme will be a baseball theme.  So grab your favorite teams shirt and hat and join us for a morning of running the bases and supporting this special cause.

Running the Ridge will begin at The Ridge Community Church (960 Millholland Rd. / Mineral Bluff, GA 30559) and will loop across the Blue Ridge Dam, turning around at the small park on the left just past the dam. 

You will receive your race bib and bag during registration the morning of the race.  Awards will be given to men and women in the following age groups:

  • Under 10
  • 10-19
  • 20-29
  • 30-39
  • 40-49
  • 50-59
  • 60 and up 

We will also be doing a raffle drawing.  The winner of the raffle will receive a gift basket with goodies from a variety of stores in Blue Ridge.  You do not have to be present to win the raffle.  Tickets can be sold at The Ridge Community Church or the morning of the race.  Ticket prices are:

  • $5 for 1 ticket
  • $10 for 3 tickets

$25 for 10 tickets
