Registration and Packet Pickup
Race starts at 8:00 am. The packet pick-up/registration will start at 7:30 with the table next to the pie stand in the Burgoo pavilion.
Run 4 the Goo is a fun 5K run and walk hosted during the Arenzville, IL Burgoo, which is celebrating its 183rd year of stirring that 'goo. Burgoo is a small town festival with big heart. To go along with this very pun heavy race, Burgoo will have vendors, carnival, games and great bands (for FREE) lined up for both Friday and Saturday night. Which the artist for Saturday night is country music star Drake White! Lastly, we will still be holding our virtual 5k for our Goo’ers Away From Goo crew.
The money raised from this event will stay in the area, with a large portion being donated to the Prairieland United Way (PLUW) that serves several agencies in Cass, Northern Greene, Scott, and Morgan counties. PLUW funds programs that help young to old and providing essential needs of food, shelter, and health. To learn more about this amazing group, please visit http://www.prairielandunitedway.org/. The other portion stays in locally in Arenzville supporting many services such as last year's recipients: Green Pastures, Arenzville Library and Tutoring Center, Cass County Food Pantry, Arenzville American Legion, Ken Bradbury Foundation, and the Arenzville Volunteer Fire Department.
If you run with a group or would like to have the entire family join in the fun, contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we will give you a special discount code for groups of 3 or more! You just can't beat that, it's just too GOO'd of a deal!
During registration you will be asked if you will be a Goo'er Away From Goo this year, aka doing a virtual 5K. This will allow you to still register, support our local organizations, get that goo'vey t-shirt, and run wherever you are! All you need to do is:
1.) Register online or by mail by the deadlines.
2.) Run 3.1 miles anytime during the week leading up to Run for the Goo (9/3 thru 9/10) wherever you.
3.) Submit your run time by screenshot or a picture of your run by any tracking system you use to email@example.com by midnight of the 11th (i.e. Strava, Garmin, RunKeeper to name a few) - Submission of time only necessary for overall and age winners.
If you have any questions, please reach out!
