High School Challenge

The high school that has the most support from this year's event participants will earn a $1,000 scholarship for a graduate from that high school who plans to attend RVC in the fall of 2020. You can choose which high school to support by joining a group/team when you register for the Golden Futures event (run or walk). Simply choose the high school you are supporting from the drop-down menu and continue on with your registration. It's that simple to show your support!

Arvee's Kids Fun Run

We are excited to bring back Arvee's Kids Fun Run again this year! The Fun Run is free and all participating kids will receive a special bib and a participation medal. Plus, the fastest boy and fastest girl will win an Arvee bobblehead! No pre-registration necessary. Simply register your child on site on October 5. The Fun Run will begin at approximately 8:45 a.m.


Medals will be awarded to top overall male and female finisher, the top overall male and female "Masters" (age 40+), as well as the top three finishers in every age category (0-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75+).

A $100 cash prize will also be awarded to the top male and top female finishers!

Strollers & Pets

The Golden Futures event is stroller and pet friendly, but we do encourage those who plan to run with strollers to line up at the back at the start line. 

Walkers will all line up at the back so if you plan to walk with a stroller or a pet, please line up accordingly to allow runners to the front. 

Our USATF certified course will take you all through our beautiful campus! Enjoy the sites along the way, including campus wildlife, stunning landscaping, and a peaceful creek complete with water fountains!

Packet Pick-up

Packet pick-up for the event will be held on Friday, October 4, 2019, 4:00-6:00 p.m. on the Rock Valley College main campus in the Physical Education Center (PEC) outside of the Fitness Lab in the PEC main corridor. 

You may also pick up your packet on the morning of the event on October 5 at Rock Valley College, 6:30-7:30 a.m. near the race start line.
