GLObal RUN 5K (glow run)

Fri May 7, 2021 Hope Mills, NC 28348 US Directions

5K Run/Walk

8:30PM EDT

Due to the continuing situation with COVID-19, we believe the safest course of action is to cancel our event. We regret this situation and appreciate your understanding.

Here Are Your Options:

Teaching Physical Education virtually has been interesting! One of the methods our department has used to keep students active and motivated iss through a virtual challenge called the Movin' BRUIN. This is a 112 mile virtual challenge that students, staff, and parents participated in and the goal was to complete one mile of activity (participant choice) for 112 days during the semester. What a success! 

If you choose to donate your registration fee, it will be used to support this virtual challenge. (Currently open to Spring 2021 students). Participants who complete the challenge are presented with a t-shirt and finisher certificate. We hope to continue this challenge even when the pandemic ends.

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.


The 9th annual GLObal RUN 5K will be a glow run!  This event is in support of Gray’s Creek Middle School's global focus and student travel. This year’s scholarship recipients are traveling to London, Paris, and France in June 2020. How awesome is that? 

Again this year--TEAM competition!

Each participant gets a t-shirt (with glow-in-the-dark print!), a glow bracelet, and glow necklace. Gear up, paint up, and get your glow on for this fun event. NOTE: Must register by April 11 to guarantee a t-shirt.

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.
