DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS WE WILL IMPLEMENT THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS:
Running the Ridge is a 5K that takes place in beautiful Blue Ridge, Georgia on October 3rd @ 8:00 am. 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. The proceeds from Running The Ridge will help provide for day to day needs for Tiffany, her son, Payton, who attends Fannin County High School and her daughter, Cassidy, who is attending law school in New Orleans. Our desire is to honor Steve by committing to a 3-year plan to help meet their financial needs as his family is restructuring their lives without him. 2020 will be our second term in this commitment. During 2019 we were able to raise $6300 for the Roath family with a donation of $675 to the Fannin County Children's Fund. This year we are hoping to beat that!!
Running the Ridge will begin at The Ridge Community Church (960 Millholland Rd. / Mineral Bluff, Georgia 30559) and will loop across the Blue Ridge Dam, turn 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:
