No Need To Fear, The Superheroes Are Here!
5K and Little Heroes Fun Run
This family and dog friendly event captures the spirit of what GO Fest is all about. You don’t have to be a professional athlete or even a serious runner to have a fun day outside, being active. 5K runners will having timing chips, but walkers, dogs, strollers, wheelchairs, and kids are all welcome. There’s also a fun run for Little Heroes (ages up to 10) that has them leaping tall buildings and dodging kryptonite! There will be costume prizes for adults, kids, and dogs – just one reason the Superhero Race was voted Best of the Blue Ridge Costumed Event by Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine readers.
All proceeds will benefit Family Promise of Greater Roanoke whose mission is to empower homeless families with children to achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.
