- 5K, Kids Run, 12K
- Good Sam’s 12Ks for the Holidays virtual charity run 2020
- Addl Details
The 12Ks for the Holidays is a fundraiser for the Good Samaritan Center, a nonprofit social service agency serving families in emergency crisis situations for over 40 years. The race itself includes a 12K run, 5K run/walk, and a Free Kids’ One Mile Fun Run, and is traditionally held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Sadly, the post-race festivities are canceled this year, but we are planning exciting virtual activities!
This year’s theme is “Baby, it’s COVID outside!” Our 12Ks looks a little different this year, but we’re making the most of it!
Registration is now open until November 30th. Participants get to pick their distance as well as their swag. Individuals do their run alone or with friends (socially distanced, of course!). Racers can do their mileage at anytime and anyplace and are encouraged to post their time on RaceRoster, as well as to post pictures of their adventure on Good Sam’s Facebook page.
If allowed by city officials, our race timing companies will be on location (Cedars/Fondren and in Laurel) on November 21st from 7am-10am with a marked course to allow folks to run and clock their own time. This offers our participants some of the race feel but with a more careful, social distancing opportunity to run a lovely course.
