General Information
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  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 (, 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!
