Description

Non-Profit 5K Race hosted by Grace Baptist Church to benefit Fike High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

What does “going the second mile” mean? Jesus said, "And whoever shall force you to go one mile, go with him two” (Matt. 5:41). Roman soldiers could force citizens of Israel or any foreigner to carry their backpacks for a mile. Often people would stake off 1 mile from their home for that reason. Everyone can do the required but strive to go the extra mile for Christ! In this case, run it!
All ages and abilities are invited to participate!  Don’t want to run/walk? Make a sign and cheer them on! Volunteers welcome! Contact via email: theextramile5k@outlook.com
