New This Year: We are offering a Virtual Race! You can register to join us on November 14th to run the 5K or 1 mile in person, or you can register to complete your race virtually. If you join us virtually, you can run the Steeple Chase 5K Virtual Race beginning November 1 through November 13th. Race results must be submitted by midnight on November 13th. If we have approval from the City of Eatonton, we will hold the race in-person on November 14th. We are hoping that we will still be able to have our on-site race, but since we are uncertain if that will work, we have offered this additional way of supporting our local veterans. Virtual Runners' results will be celebrated on https://www.facebook.com/steeplechasefumc so be sure and follow us online!
What is a Virtual Race? A Virtual Race is like a traditional race, but it takes place in a location and time of your choice. You can walk, jog, or run wherever you may be and at any time during the race time frame of November 1st- 13th. The registration cost for the Virtual Race will be $25 and will still include a T-shirt if you register by the November 1st. Local runners can choose to pick up their T-shirt at EFUMC's office after November 14th or have it delivered within a 20 mile radius. Runners who are not local can have their shrit mailed to them. Once you complete your Virtual Race, you will submit your results to us (more information to follow).
