Unity Run XXVIII


The 28th Annual Unity Run is set for Tuesday, September 28th at 6:30pm.  It is the official start to the United Way of Gordon County’s annual fundraising campaign.  The Unity Run is a fundraiser for United Way, and raises money  for our many partner agencies in Gordon County. We are overwhelmed with the success from the past 27 years of this race, and look to try and raise the bar again this year! The race begins at Gordon Central High School and ends right in the middle of beautiful downtown Calhoun where medals, t-shirts, prizes, water, snacks, and numerous community vendors wait to greet and cheer on the racers as they finish. Whether you can run for days or just like a nice, calm walk, or everything in between, this event is for you!

Unity Run 2020

The United Way Unity Run 5K looked a little different this year. With COVID-19 still affecting how we plan our day-to-day, the 27th race was held virtually. We had a total of 107 runners and raised over $14,035 for our 2021 United Way Campaign. We would also like to thank Engineered Floors for designing this year's logo! 
Instead of submitting race times this year, we awarded winners based on the following categories: Farthest Participant from Gordon County, Most Unique Race Route, Most Creative Outfit, and Most Spirited! Congratulations to our 2020 Unity Run 5K winners! 
  • Farthest Participant(s) from Gordon County: Hannah Knight and Andrew Krikorian ran in Boston, Massachusetts 
  • Most Unique Race Route: Holland West ran in Erwin, TN - Appalachia. His route included mountain views, countryside fields, downtown, and a brief jaunt at the local skate park. 
  • Most Creative Outfit: John Cross ran as Joe Exotic  
  • Most Spirited: George Southgate who ran in Fort Worth, TX
