Organiser's Description

Experience one of the oldest road runs in North Carolina. Except for the 2020 year due to the pandemic, the event has been held annually since 1979. Come be part of a running event with a long tradition and enjoy a run or walk on a USATF certified course primarily along streets lined with azaleas and dogwoods. Despite the safety limitations regarding close gatherings of large groups, participants can enjoy the revitalized area formerly the Cornerstone Commons, now called The Hub as well as the further extensions of the Streetscape improvements to Center Street. Our volunteers will observe safety precautions as necessary to facilitate another excellent event.
The Run for a Child – 45th Annual Greater Goldsboro Road Run is facilitated by the Sunrise Kiwanis of Goldsboro. The event is a fundraiser to help support our purpose of assisting the children and youth of our community. The funds generated from event sponsorships and participants go toward financial support for over 20 local organizations that assist the needy children and youth of Wayne County.
