Ghost 'n Goblin Youth Running Challenge

What is the GnG Youth Running Challenge?

Ghost 'n Goblin is the second largest fundraiser for the Ohio River Road Runner's Club (behind Turkey Trot, and as race directors we're hoping to make it #1)! Our mission is to give back to the community by encouraging running (or walking) in our community, so this year we're giving back to our region's youth runners! We'll be donating part of Ghost 'n Goblin's proceeds to help four local school running programs.

How Do I Help?

1. Register for the Ghost 'n Goblin 5k!2. Select a school district on your registration form.3. Tell your friends to sign up & pick their favorite school district.4. That's it! It's that simple & you just helped young runners and walkers in our area!5. Want to give even more? You'll have an option for an extra donation at registration.

How are Challenge Winners Selected?

When you register for the Ghost 'n Goblin 5k, you'll be asked to select a school district from the Dayton area to help out as a part of your registration. Pick your favorite and your vote will be cast! The school district in each division receiving the most votes wins! They will receive up to $500 for equipment, uniforms, race entries, or other items to help encourage & support youth running/health.
Note: If a school has no running/health programs and does not wish to start one, the next highest vote-receiving school district in that division will receive the challenge donation.

Find Out Who Won!

The 2020 Ghost 'n Goblin 5k Youth Running Challenge winners will be announced on our website and via social media and race emails!
