Unity Run

Unity Run 2020

  • The UNITY RUN 5K will look a little different this year. With COVID-19 affecting how we plan our day-to-day, we have decided to hold the 27th race virtually this year, which will take place November 23 - December 7, 2020. READ MORE HERE. 

  • A virtual race is a lot like a traditional 5K. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, or at the gym. You can run your own race, at your own pace and when it is convenient for you! We will have 5K routes mapped out at the Gordon County Recreation Department and The City of Calhoun Recreation Department.

  • Thank you Engineered Floors for designing this year's logo! 

Please note that we are not timing or submitting race times this year -- it will be more of a fun-run instead of a competitive race.

The following categories will be awarded:
  • Farthest participant from Gordon County
  • Most unique race route
  • Most creative outfit when running! 
Use the hashtag #UnityRun2020 during the race to be entered for the awards! 

Registration opens Friday, October 9, 2020. Register by November 2, 2020 to receive a race t-shirt! Click here to register.
