GAC Runners is the best kind of team, because we don’t have any practices, you can join us for any of our events or pick your own, run or walk any speed, and still have a great time being part of our team. Our running events give us the opportunity to connect during the non-summer months, and they help keep us fit and ready to swim, hike, and climb around camp in the summer!
If you have a race or event you’ll be participating in, request your GAC Runners shirt and we’ll send it to you for free as long as you wear it at your event and send us a picture of you running. Our team members run all over the place – even in other countries! To request a shirt, go to our GAC Runners page and click on the “Join GAC Runners Now” link.
We’ve had a great season so far, with several fun events and lots of participation from staff, campers, and parents. Our biggest turn-out was at the Spirit Run in Newport Beach on March 23. GAC co-sponsored the Youth 5K and hosted a booth at the expo at this fun event, which supports area schools. GAC had runners in just about every event and age category, and we enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day of running.
On March 22, we participated in the Great Race of Agoura and enjoyed the fun carnival atmosphere of the expo area, complete with bounce houses and post-race treats.
Our last races of the season are coming up on Sunday, April 27, in Los Angeles and on Sunday, June 1, in Menlo Park. We hope to see many of you at the Kids 4 Kids 5K Race, which raises money for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund, and at the Are You In Run, which helps fund community-supported schools in the Menlo Park City School District.
