5K & Fun Run Course


The 5K course begins and ends in the Glenkirk Elementary School bus loop.  The race runs through or past the surrounding neighborhoods districted for Glenkirk Elementary and will be electronically timed by chipped bibs. The Fun Run is an obstacle course around the school fields designed with our younger participants in mind, but fun for and open to all ages.  This Knights’ Quest will test Glenkirk’s 5 castle attributes: Trustworthiness, Fearlessness, Bravery, Determination, and Loyalty! Registration in the 5K includes entry for the Fun Run as well.





There will be two events: a Fun Run Obstacle Course and a 5K race.

Walkers and strollers are welcome for the 5K.  Pets are not permitted on school grounds. Parents/adults are strongly encouraged to accompany youth during the 5K race.  Parents/adults may also choose to accompany youth during the Fun Run, at their discretion.
