GUE Fun Run

Join us for a our hometown and have planned a 6k and 12k route that leads participants through a quaint High Springs neighborhood, along a nicely paved trail to Poe Springs, and back to GUE Headquarters. We won’t be timing people and there won’t be age categories or divisions of any kind. The idea is to go have FUN, and the fee includes a fun event tee! 

Price: $30
