The Greater Forest City Business Alliance is excited to announce our SECOND annual 5K and Community Walk to be held on Sunday, May 21, 2023, on the D & H Trail at the Forest City trailhead! The 5K race start is scheduled for 10 am with a 1 mile “Community Fun Walk” to follow immediately thereafter.
In January 2022, Forest City lost a longtime resident and “running icon”, Donny Teague at the age of 91. For all who knew Don, he was “always running”. He was known and will be remembered for his true love of the sport, boundless energy and his colorful and attention-grabbing outfits when hitting the pavement. He was also a faithful supporter, advocate, and statistician for the Forest City Regional Cross-Country Team, for more than 20 years. He was committed to the success of those student athletes and made sure each team member had the support they needed to cross the finish line. He was out on the course until they were in. We are honored to recognize Don with this event and beginning in 2023, the race will perpetually be named the “Forest City Teague Trail Trot”.
In line with Donny’s joy of running in, around and through Forest City and beyond, funds raised from this race will be earmarked to support projects connecting local commerce to our region’s outdoor experience. Specifically, in 2023, the GFCBA is working to support multiple community projects including the Center Street Park renovation, a seasonal video creation of our area to draw attention to us for travel and commerce and other projects to improve town aesthetics, such as a sculpture trail and an expanding mural program.
