You will have it made it the shade at this fun event celebrating Summer, at our new location at Longview Lake Beach!  The Sunglass Run 5K is an event for the whole family with a 5K run/walk and kids run afterwards!  All participants will receive a finishers medal and a pair of sunglasses!  5K participants will receive a pair of the popular Goodr sunglasses that are designed to keep you looking cool while being active!  Instead of preselecting a style from a limited set of options when you register, you will pick your style from a broader selection at packet pickup on a first come, first served basis. If you don't need sunglasses, you can opt out and save $12. Participants can also add an event shirt if they like for just $8!  Sign up today and help us raise funds for our charity partner, Zero Reasons Why.
