About This Activity

The Give It Up For Gulu 5K Run/Walk is held in the beginning of fall at the beautiful Rockford Park.  The 100-year-old Rockford Tower is the leftpiece of this park. The historic stone water tower is located amid rolling hills and vistas offering beautiful views of the city. Rockford Park boasts large open spaces surrounded by beautiful wooded areas, making it the perfect spot for picnics, jogging, flying kites, playing ball, tennis, and hiking.  

T-shirts are included with your registration along with a raffle to the 2015 Firefly Concert in Dover, Delaware.  Post-race refreshments will include fresh apples from a local orchard and lemon grass tea from Uganda.  

Great prizes from local businesses for top three finishers in each 10 year age categories

*Special Denise McFadden prize for top female finisher in 50 yr. category 

Our first 5K was filled with the spirit of the crowd who not only came out for a great run on a challenging course, but with the motivation of helping the struggling people of our world! This spirit was felt 7,000 miles away in the village of Anaka in Gulu, Uganda.  Come and be a part of this great event and see the progress we have made in one year's time. Timing by
