Springville Sprint 5K and Fun Run ~ Powder Springs

runnerStart the day with a 5K at 8:00 a.m.  Hosted by First Baptist Church of Powder Springs. The 26th Springville Sprint 5K and Fun Run on Oct 5 is the official race of Powder Springs Day. More importantly the Springville Sprint is a charity event supporting Brighton Their World ministry. Brighton Their World provides life sustaining baby formula to orphans in Ethiopia and in 2012 we donated over $2000 to this cause.

The Springville Sprint is a family and pet friendly event open to all walkers, joggers and runners who want to join the fun and support the cause. The Fun Run (mostly walkers) is a 1 mile loop and will begin at 8:00 am. All children completing the course will receive an award ribbon. The Springville Sprint 5K begins at 8:30 am and will run thru downtown on a rolling and enjoyable course. The Fun Run and 5K begin and end on North Ave.  Rumor has it that Tristen Estes, 2 time winner of the Fun Run and Benjamin LeBlanc, the youngest ever 5K Champion will both be back to defend their crowns.
