Recently, Glynn County canceled the July 4th fireworks and are limiting groups to less than 50 people; therefore, we will be unable to hold the event as originally planned.
As an alternative, we are holding a "Virtual Sunshine Festival 5K" where participants receive an event shirt, and they walk/run at a location of their choice and are encouraged to share their results/photos on social media. Participants may also enter their finish time through the "It's Your Race" platform. Please use the #SSI5K on social media.
Just like in years past, the Golden Isles Track Club will use the proceeds of this event to support running-related causes in our community. In 2019, we gave donations to the Brunswick High School and Glynn Academy cross country and track teams, and provided funds to the local Girls on the Run chapter.
Facebook – Participants who snap a picture of themselves and share it with us by using the #SSI5K on Facebook by Sunday, July 12 will be entered into a drawing to receive a prize from us.
Winners will be announced via the Golden Isles Track Club Facebook Page on Tuesday, July 14.
Shirt Pick-Up – Thursday, July 2, and Friday, July 3 from 2-6 PM.
Location – Mallery Park Picnic Pavillion (located on Park Avenue between Anne Avenue & Mallery Street) in St. Simons Island.
Mail Option – If you want your shirt mailed, there is an additional $5 fee. Please note: your shirt will be mailed on July 2 and will arrive SOMETIME AFTER Saturday, July 4.
