About the 5K

Run with the Badges 5k Glow Run and what YOU can expect:

Paulding Public Safety Appreciation, Inc. is a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to raising money, awareness and support for members of public safety! Our annual Run with the Badges 5K Glow Run is our biggest fundraising event of the year and in 2019 we had a record breaking number of runners and raised record breaking funds to assist public safety personnel during their times of need. This will be our 8th annual event and we're more excited than ever to host this event this year and look forward to seeing you on Friday, June 4th!

Gates for the event will open at 6pm with a vendor display to include music, fun things to do and see, and our newest addition for 2021...FOOD TRUCKS! The race starts at 9pm with a presentation of the flag from Paulding County's Honor Guard.

Registered runners will receive a CUSTOM Run with the Badges 5K Glow Run t-shirt, a swag bag full of goodies from our local vendors and sponsors, as well as a custom GLOW IN THE DARK finisher medal!
