Join us for our 2nd annual Gator Tail 5K Trail Run and Kids Gator Gallop 1/2 Mile Fun Run presented by Tamanend! The mission of this empowering initiative is to increase Northshore Technical Community College scholarships and to encourage our community to LIVE healthy for a fantastic cause. The 2nd Annual Gator Tail 5K Race like so many other races this year, will be presented as a "virtual" competition. In this model, participants will be able to run the 5k course of their choice, individually or with a group! Don't worry if you don't have a favorite 5K route to run, we can provide suggestions (with maps) for you!
