Description

5 K Run (Chip Timed)/1 Mile Fun Run

Our continuing goal is to provide clean and safe drinking water f or the rural regions of Sierra Leone.  Dirty water threatens lives and destroys livelihoods on a devastating scale. Additionally, severe issues with farming due to localized drought and soil erosion has caused short supplies of needed food to the villages. Proceeds from this 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Run will go toward maintaining the clean water initiatives already in place and development of best farming practices for the region. We are again partnering with Seven Hills Global Outreach and Zion Ministries in Sierra Leone for their support in this life changing endeavor.

Beginning our 13th year, Running 4 Clean Water has raised in excess of $160,000 for clean water projects.  Come be a part of this life saving event.
Bib and T-shirt Pickup: Bib and T-shirts can be picked up at First united Methodist Church, Garland (801 W. Avenue B, Garland, TX 75040) on Friday October 13th from 4 to 7 pm. Bibs and T-shirts can also be picked up the morning of the race at on-site registration after 6:30 am. However, no bag check service will be provided on race day, so please plan accordingly.

ABOUT THE TRAIL- the 5K will be run on the Duck Creek Greenbelt trail. The path is cement and goes thru wooded and open areas. As with any cement path there may be areas of high and low pavement, so please be aware when running/walking. There is one very low area of the pathway, that might cause the event to be postponed if it rains the day of the event or just prior to it. The race managers will survey the trail the day prior to access conditions and make last minute determinations.
