11TH ANNUAL RACE FOR EDUCATION 5K AND FUN RUN
The RACE FOR EDUCATION 5K AND FUN RUN is held annually in September in celebration of National Literacy Month. The proceeds of this race will benefit adult education initiatives at Central Georgia Technical College. The Adult Education Division’s mission is to enable adult learners in Central Georgia acquire the basic skills necessary to compete successfully in today’s global workplace, to strengthen individual character and family foundations, and to exercise full citizenship.
As a result of the continued concerns over the COVID-19 virus and CGTC’s commitment to the well-being of our students, faculty, staff, donors, and volunteers, we have elected to offer a virtual format for our 2020 race.
T-shirts are guaranteed to all entrants who register by August 31, 2020 at midnight.
You will be able to post your time on ITS YOUR RACE or use the ITS YOUR RACE app.
