Family friendly event includes 5K, Fun Run and Nature Walk
May 12, 2023, Flowery Branch, GA – Eagle Ranch (www.eagleranch.org), Northeast Georgia’s premier family restoration program, will host its annual Run the Ranch event on Saturday, June 3. This is a unique opportunity to see Eagle Ranch’s private 315-acre campus while supporting the Ranch’s mission to help make life better for children, families, and the community.
For those looking for a competitive race, our 5K course proves challenging with rolling hills and brief unpaved segments. For those interested in walking, participants will enjoy shaded, tree-lined paths and beautifully paved roads with pasture views.
A quarter-mile Fun Run allows children and those who want less of a challenge to enjoy participating in a fast, fun event. The 1.5-mile Nature Walk includes beautiful, unpaved woodland trails.
This race is the perfect opportunity to learn about the Eagle Ranch mission and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Highlights from the June 3 schedule include:
- 7:30 AM – Packet Pick-Up/On-Site Registration
- 8:15 AM – Fun Run
- 8:35 AM – 5K Start
- 8:40 AM – Nature Walk Start
- 9:45 AM – Awards Ceremony (will follow immediately after 5K completion)
For an affordable $25 registration fee, participants will receive a premium shirt and swag bag. A family discount is available, allowing up to six family members to run for $80. Registration is available at RunSignUp.
