Join the Piedmont Pacers Running, Track & Field Club as we host our Second Annual "Fill the Sleigh 5K, Fun Run and Team Challenge" at Northeast Park in Guilford County NC, near the town of Gibsonville on Saturday, December 3rd. 

The start of the race will begin at 10:30AM with late registration and packet pickup beginning at 8:30AM.

An exciting 5 Kilometer (3.1 mile) competitive race course awaits and the Fun Run option is a 1-mile loop around the Northeast Park and great for everyone (strollers ok for fun run) wanting to enjoy a fun run with a holiday theme. 

Lastly, there is a team challenge for runners in the competitive 5K (5 runners minimum per team to attain a team score, 5 fastest combined times will determine team rankings.) Due to safety issues please avoid bring dogs or other animals to the event.

We will be "Filling the Sleigh" by encouraging everyone to bring wrapped gifts to benefit the Ricky Proehl P.O.W.E.R. of Play Foundation for needs for children in our local community. Along with gifts, proceeds from the event will also go to this worthwhile organization.

This race is also the last event & finale of the Fall 2016 American Masters Track & Field Series and is the only 5k road running event of the 5 event series.  More details are on the series tab.
