 The event is being organized by the Dawson County Schools' Wellness Program.  The goal of the event is to promote student health awareness.  This will be a free event for all Dawson County School students.  All other registration fees will go toward covering the cost of the event. 

Registration Fees

 Dawson County students can all come out and run for free!  Students can purchase a T-shirt for $10.   All other participants are required to pay a $25 registration fee which will include a T-shirt.  Race day registrations are welcome for $5 more.

Course, Timing, & Event Cap

The Let's Glow 5K course is fast and fun!  There are a couple of easy hills, and there will be lots of people to cheer you on to the finish line!  We will be chip timing everyone, so if you're looking for a PR, you should get a great net chip time.

 There is an event cap.  1500 participants is all we can have and still guarantee everyone a safe, good time. 

Awards and Goodies

 Join us at the finish line for music, recognition, refreshments, and loads of glow!
