Course Description

Race will begin at the back of Gray's Creek Middle School.  Runners will travel on Celebration Drive, turning left on Thistle Gold.  When Thistle Gold ends, turn left on Lady, then right on Calbaletta.  Right on Gentleman Drive, right on Lady, then left on Thistle Gold.  A final left on Walking Trail Way will lead walkers and runners back to the middle school and the finish line.  A cyclist will ride in front of the lead runners.

Gray's Creek Middle School is located in Hope Mills, NC.  It is a global school that focuses on and promotes the idea that its students are part of a world much larger than their hometown.  In support of students who are traveling globally, GCMS has started a 5K race as a fundraiser to help with travel costs.  As this race grows, GCMS hopes the number of students experiencing world travel also will grow.  Our goal is that our school and community will become rich with real world travelers, experiences, and knowledge.
