About This Activity

Bainbridge Runners will host a 5K in memory and celebration of the life of Dr. Eric E. Dueno. Eric was an avid runner and a beloved member of Bainbridge Runners and Gulf Winds Track Club. Eric was also an enthusiastic and very respected and loved professor of Chemistry at Bainbridge State College. Eric passed away September 3, 2015 after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest on the City of Bainbridge Nature Trail while on a run with a few of his Bainbridge Runner friends. He is deeply missed!!

The race will start on Cox Avenue, near the Humane Society and will run a short distance down Cox Avenue, turning onto the City of Bainbridge's beautiful, wooded Nature Trail and running past Eric's memorial site. The race will end near the softball fields, across from the Bill Reynold's Sports Complex. 

Proceeds will benefit The Wounded Warrior Project. Bainbridge Runners are also hoping to start a scholarship fund in Dr. Dueno's honor.

Please contact Suzanne Angell at 229-344-3182 or sangell@swgrc.org if you have any questions or need additional information.
