About This Activity

Lace up those sneakers and break out your sweatbands because Beacon Hill and the Eastgate Neighborhood Association are teaming up to host a community-wide event you wouldn’t want to miss!  Our 6th Annual Eastgate 5K Run-Walk is right around the corner on Saturday September 23rd at 9:00am. Starting in the front parking lot of Beacon Hill, the course winds through the lovely Eastgate Neighborhood staying entirely within the ENA boundaries, coming in to finish at Beacon Hill where there will be food, entertainment, and awards to wrap up the race.  Proceeds from the race go to both the Eastgate Neighborhood Association and the Beacon Hill Foundation, which provides sustained benevolent care to residents of Beacon Hill. Not interested in running or walking but still want to be part of the event... we have just the thing for you! Every great race needs fans! Grab your family and friends, your pom poms and posters, and head out to the course to cheer on the racers!  If your house is on the course you’re already in a perfect spot!  Volunteers are also a vital role in producing a successful event.

On Friday September 22nd leading up to the excitement of race day we will host a community spaghetti dinner for everyone to come and enjoy!  Dinner will be from 5-7pm in the Garden Café and tickets will be $5 a person or $20 per family.

More information can be found at beaconhillgr.org or contact our Race Director at Domi.Aouad@beaconhillgr.org or 616-608-8270. See you on race day!
