Glenaire Retirement Community is proud to present the fourth annual Glenaire 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run on Saturday, September 19, 2020. The race will start
finish at the Community located at 5000 Glenhope Court in Cary. The 5k starts at 9 am and the 1-Mile starts at 9:10 am.

As a non-profit, Presbyterian-affiliated organization, Glenaire has never asked any residents to leave our community simply because they have
resources. In its 27 years, Glenaire has provided well over $5 million in financial assistance. In 2020, we expect to provide over $500,000 in
funds. 100% of race proceeds will support this cause.
All 5K participants will have the option to be timed, but recreational runners and walkers are welcome. Although all finishers will be able to see
time at the finish, only competive entrants will be eligible for awards.
The 5K entry fee is $30 increasing to $35 on race day.
The 1-Mile Fun Run fee is $20 with no late fee. Registered children under the age of 12 are free, but this does not include a t-shirt unless you choose to
T-shirts are guaranteed to all those who register by September 1st 2020. After that date, they will be “as available”.
