About This Activity

Experience one of the oldest road runs in North Carolina.  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.  Enjoy the fellowship and food with other runners and walkers.  Make it a family affair with events for all members.

The Run for a Child – 39th Annual Greater Goldsboro Road Run, with its new name, 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.
