Glow brighter this summer! Georgetown’s fourth annual after dark 5K—the Glo-n-Go Fun Run–will be held on Saturday, August 3th, at 7:45 PM. Everyone is welcome: runners, walkers, people with dogs, and families with strollers. The Glo-n-Go 5K Fun Run benefits the scholarship fund of our school, helping families pay tuition and other costs.
The Glo-n-Go Fun Run will begin and end in front of our school. The circuit will take participants through beautiful downtown Georgetown and around East Bay. The cost is $25 through July 24 for everyone older than 7, then goes up to $30. Kids seven and under participate for free, but still must register. All paying participants will receive T-shirts and reusable LED flashlights. There will be prizes in both traditional and fun categories. Yes, there will be snacks for hungry Kingfishers as well!
Download a registration form from this website or pick one up at the school Tuesday through Thursday 9:00-1:00. Forms are also available at Green Bean Consignment on Front Street.
The Glo-n-Go 5K Fun Run offers a unique opportunity for families and athletes to enjoy being active after dark under the lovely live oaks and along the scenic marshes of Georgetown–with the added fun of glow-in-the-dark accessories. Downtown residents are encouraged to turn on their porch lights, and come out and cheer. Bring all your glow-in-the-dark accessories and clothing to light up the night. Kids will love seeing all the decorated people, dogs, and strollers!
