What is the TJ5K?

The TJ5K was initiated in 2013 in memory and celebration of the life of Thomas John Giffin, who passed away at 21 months of age from undetermined causes. Thomas was found unresponsive in his bed on the morning of December 12, 2012, and efforts to revive him by his father, Robby, and emergency personnel were unsuccessful.

A Race for Everyone

5K TRAIL RUN

The trail is a grass course winding through a beautiful rural setting. It includes a flat running surface as well as a gradual incline, making the second half of the course more challenging than the first.

1-MILE RUN/WALK

The 1-mile course winds inside the 5k trail. A pond is part of the pastoral setting one will see. This is a great course for beginning runners or those who want to enjoy a relaxing walk in a beautiful setting.

It is a great trail for family participation.

“tiny-k” FUN RUN

The “tiny-k” has a course all its own and is fun for the kids. You will find parents and grandparents watching and cheering on their little runners. Who could resist? Awesome goody bags and medals await each participant.

 

Sponsorship Opportunities

 

“It’s hard to express how much your support means to us. We could not have raised over $25,000 for tiny-k Early intervention without you! There is no doubt that you care about the children and families who benefit from the services provided to them.” — Janice Dunn, Race Coordinator
