2018 Run for God Funnel Cake 5K
4th of July Celebration Run
Announcing the first ever Run for God Funnel Cake 5K. Celebrate the 4th of July with Run for God in downtown Cohutta, Georgia. The course is fast and runs through country roads. Declare your independence from the sedentary life! All runners receive a Funnel Cake after the race! Stay all day for fun and fireworks presented by the town of Cohutta when the sun goes down!
All finishers will receive a ticket for a free Funnel Cake to redeem immediately following your race!
All 5K finishers will receive a short sleeve moisture-wicking technical t-shirt. Be sure to sign up early to be guaranteed a t-shirt at packet pickup.
Everyone who registers and races WILL receive a t-shirt, however, those who register after Sunday - July 1, 2018, will have to pick theirs up at a later date.
Packet pick up and the race headquarters is at the corner of King Street and Windwalker Drive in Cohutta at the Cohutta Community Center.
Run for God is a Nonprofit Corporation. 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.
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.”
