Camp #Runthistown - America's Edition!

Virtual AndersonSC  29621 Organized by First Flight Alliance

About this event


Dear Participants,

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and in coordination with government officials, all in-person First Flight Alliance events, group training, and community programming are canceled through June 30. We will reassess in June based on recommendations from local and state officials.

Because of the close date proximity with this race, we are choosing to close registration for America's 5K and will allow anyone who has registered to transfer your registration to the Electric City Gobbler 5K held on Thanksgiving morning. We are asking that all transfers be made by August 30, 2020. To request a transfer, please send email to alison@yourfirstflight.org.

Our prayer is that you are all well and that we will run as a community again soon!

Alison Youngblood
Race Director / Board Chair

Join us for Camp #runthistown - America's Edition!

Goal Race: America's 5K - a Fourth of July Celebration!

Camp #runthistown is a 10 week running program designed to help you take your first or next steps toward your goal to cross a 5K finish line! This edition of camp will take place at the Civic Center track on Sunday evenings at 7pm.

This is our tenth year of serving the residents of Anderson County. With the help of our awesome volunteers, we have watched as thousands of runners have crossed their first 5K finish lines. Many have gone on to complete 1/2 marathon and full marathon distances, many who are now running on our NYC Marathon #RunthistownBIGAPPLE team! You could be next!

With a goal race on your calendar, the support of group runs and the encouragement of those that have been where you are, it's a perfect plan to get you in the running shape of your dreams!

If you are intersted in volunteering for this camp, please email alison@yourfirstlfight.org. Once approved, you will receive a QL CODE to register as a volunteer. Thank you for your willingness to serve our great community!
