Upcoming GAC Runners Events
Sunday, March 18: Newport-Mesa Spirit Run
Sunday, May 20: Schoolhouse Rocks 5K – Menlo Park
If you like running or walking for recreation, just want to try your local 5K race, or are a competitive athlete, GAC has a great opportunity for you. The Gold Arrow Camp Runners is a club with the goal to have Gold Arrow Campers and their families support worthy children’s causes while developing an interest in running, maintaining fitness, and promoting their favorite summer camp – GAC!
All members receive a free, moisture wicking t-shirt. In exchange for the t-shirt, you must promise to send us a picture of you in your shirt at a local race (if it’s not one we’re participating in). We’ll put your picture and race report here on the Runners page. You can try a marathon, 10K, or a 100-yard walk. You can run, jog, or walk. There are no requirements for distance or speed. All campers who join the GAC Runners will be recognized during their stay at camp.
