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! 
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.
