If you’ve ever wanted to race an all-female race, then this is the race for you ladies! This race takes place at the beautiful north campus of Grove Level Baptist Church on a running trail that takes you across fields, through the woods, over bridges and to a fun-filled running experience. Be sure to register NOW because slots will go fast!
The race has been on Friday evenings in the past, but this year, it will be on Saturday morning!
Still bring the family, but tell the boys to sit back and watch how it’s done!

The Pinky Race Shirt: The shirt that is included with your race is an awesome wicking shirt that is, of course, ladies cut!
The Pinky Medal: All the ladies who finish the Pinky 5K are in for a real treat. You will be presented this high quality die cast finishers medal as you cross the finish line. Yes, this medal is the same or maybe even a better quality medal than you would receive at some of the nation's largest marathons. These are very rarely given out at 5K’s, but Pinky says that you are worth it!
These special edition T Shirts are not included with your entry, but they are available at the race and at RunforGod.com!
100% of the proceeds from our races are used in one of two ways. When you register, you will be helping to take the name of Jesus to the running world through the "Who do you say that I AM?" ad campaign. We are seeing eternal decisions made in response to the ads in Runner's World Magazine! If you'd like to know more, please visit RunforGod.com. The second is to keep the day-to-day operations of Run for God moving. Our revenue comes from books, t-shirts, sponsors, and races.
You never know when Pinky herself might show up! Sometimes she is accompanied by her male counterpart Sticky. They love taking part in our races and having their photos taken with other runners!
We get this question often, and we understand that some of you fast runners may be waiting a while before getting your award. But here at Run for God, we have decided that EVERYONE should experience that magical finish line experience no matter what their time may be. For this reason, we hope that you will hang around and help us cheer every runner in, and be inspired by those who just a short time ago were saying “I can’t” and are now saying “I did”.
