Description

The Greater Forest City Business Alliance is excited to announce our THIRD annual 5K and Community Walk to be held on Saturday, May 11, 2024, on the D & H Trail!  The 5K race start is scheduled for 10 am with a 1 mile “Community Fun Walk” to follow immediately thereafter.  

In January 2022, Forest City lost a longtime resident and “running icon”, Donny Teague at the age of 91. For all who knew Don, he was “always running”.    He was known and will be remembered for his true love of the sport, boundless energy and his colorful and attention-grabbing outfits when hitting the pavement.  He was also a faithful supporter, advocate, and statistician for the Forest City Regional Cross-Country Team, for more than 20 years.  He was committed to the success of those student athletes and made sure each team member had the support they needed to cross the finish line.  He was out on the course until they were in.  We are honored to recognize and remember Don with this event.   

In line with Donny’s joy of running in, around and through Forest City, funds raised from this race continue to be earmarked to support projects connecting local commerce to our region’s outdoor experience.  Specifically, in 2024, the GFCBA will continue to collaborate with local entities and support projects that are intended to improve and showcase our beautiful region.  Projects active within our community include a façade program, renovation of Center Street Park, a sculpture trail, and a new initiative to place bike racks within the town.  A seasonal video project undertaken by our marketing committee and developed during 2023 will be ready for release and promotion within the upcoming months.  There are so many things the Greater Forest City community is accomplishing and the GFCBA is pleased to offer support.
