About This Activity

Run Like a Wildebeest

(Greg Flint's Run)

10K Run & 5K Run/Walk (Kids Little Wildebeest Run)

Listen carefully. Can you hear the faint sound of a rumbling herd? That's the wildebeest returning to Flushing for their annual migration. This third year race honors Greg Flint who has been greatly missed by all who knew him. Greg was an avid runner and a unique character with a heart of gold. Greg joked with his running buddy about forming a Run like a Rabid Wildebeest Running Club. Great name for a race!

The 5K race will take you through the county park in Flushing. The 10K route is one of the most scenic runs in the area and includes the Flushing river trail, the county park, and various Flushing neighborhoods. The kids' race will be at the high school track. Proceeds from this race will go to Flushing High School Track & Cross Country, The Thomas Smith Memorial Foundation and other local charities.
