The 6th annual Granite City 5K Run/Walk for Veterans will be completed by November 7th, 2020. The event, with sponsors such as Community National Bank and Metro Development, LLC., is to celebrate the service of people in our armed forces and raise awareness of the many challenges veterans endure. This event is presented by the Sons of the American Legion Squadron #10 and Barre Elks Lodge #1535. Proceeds of this event will go to the Veterans' Place, Inc. in Northfield, Vermont to support transitional housing and other services for our most vulnerable veterans.

Registration is open for race participants online at https://legacy.imathlete.com/events/GC5k2020. Race participants will receive masks with the event logo and a personalized letter by mail. A virtual silent auction will be held throughout the duration of the event and can be found on the facebook events page.

The Granite City signature shirts may be purchased separately. Please email me the shirt size and mailing/drop off information. Orders will be fulfilled after the race date as we will need to order the shirts in bulk and after all orders are submitted.
