Enjoy running or walking on our cart paths that wind through the tranquility and beautiful mountain views of the Silver Creek golf course. The race may be only 3.1 miles long, but don’t be fooled: The hills with 400ft gain and loss will make you earn your Thanksgiving feast!
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, all proceeds from the run will benefit the Meeting Place Mission. This 100% self-funded program has a long history of helping local people escape homelessness through providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, and rapid rehousing along with continual case management to ensure success. Over the past 7 years the success rate of people housed has been greater than 95%. Once families or individuals complete the programs at the Meeting Place Mission, they become successful contributing members of the community. The Mission’s goal is to give everyone willing to put in the work a successful opportunity for permanent housing.
Your entry includes a race T-shirt.
Medals will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in each gender and age division.
This event will be professionally chip-timed by GateCity Race Timing! Results will be posted live as participants cross the finish line. Results will be “official” once the event is over.
