This is a flat course starting and finishing at 185 S. Brunswick St., Jesup GA 31546. This is an Easter Egg Run so be prepared to get covered in safe, washable, colored powder while raising money to help kids with serious illnesess. Every runner who registers by March 15, 2014, will receive a white t-shirt with logo, sunglasses, a souvenir egg filled with colored powder, and a security bracelet that provides each runner access to discounts at select stores around Jesup and Wayne County. Registration after March 15th does not guarantee you a t-shirt. There is a 1 Mile Bunny Hop for youner children and those who cannot walk a 5K, and those entered will receive a plastic egg with surprises inside. During the 5K, the Youth Ministry at First Baptist Church will host a free, chaperoned Easter Carnival for children 10 and under with carnival games, a blow-up slide and bounce house. There is no charge for the carnival; it is our gift to the parents participating in the run.
