We are pleased to invite you to Goldey-Beacom College’s inaugural (and virtual) Lightning Bolt 5K Run & 1886 Legacy Walk, brought to you by the GBC Alumni Association and the Track & Field/Cross Country teams. Run your favorite 5K loop or walk for 1,886 seconds (the year in which Goldey College was founded), submit your results online, and be eligible to win one of a number of great prizes and awards. This event takes place the week of GBC's Legacy Weekend!
In order to come together and show support for the Lightning community while social distancing, participants can race virtually from anywhere in the world. Walk or run on the treadmill, through a local park, around the neighborhood, or on the track. Just make sure you are wearing your Lightning gear and tracking your distance! Any time during the dates of November 2-8, 2020, participants can complete their run/walk from anywhere they choose.
You must submit a time in order to be eligible for prizes. Acceptable submissions can include a screenshot from Strava, MapMyRun, Apple Watch, or any comparable app that shows time and distance traveled. A photo of your treadmill and screen is also acceptable.
We will also be adding the fun of the 'drive-thru' to this event. Join us on the recently renovated GBC campus on Saturday, October 31st, to enjoy our newest version of a safe and socially-distanced "Packet Pickup" with window service. This is where you’ll pick up your custom race bib!
Packet Pickup “Drive-Thru” - Saturday, October 31st - 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (anyone who can't make it on 10/31/20 will have their race packet mailed to them!)
Be sure to use #GBCBOLT5K and tag the official GBC accounts to share your race preparation and post-race photos and videos on social media!
