Glenaire Retirement Community is proud to present the fifth
annual Glenaire 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run on Saturday, March
27, 2021. The race usually starts and finishes at the
Community located at 5000 Glenhope Court in Cary. This
year’s race will again be virtual and that’s reflected in the reduced entrance fees. Hopefully, we can all get back together next year!
Most race entries include a swag bag, a coupon for a free Papa
Murphy’s pizza and our very popular t-shirt.
This virtual race provides you an opportunity to run this course or any
other 5K course from March 21– 27, 2021. Once you have completed
your course you can upload your time into RaceReach. Please note that
the residents and staff will be on the course Saturday, March 27th from
8:00am – 10:30am. We ask that you refrain from running the course
during that time only. You are welcome to stand along the course and
cheer them on, but we are still under limited visitor restrictions on
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 2021, we expect to provide over $445,000.00 in
funds. 100% of race proceeds will support this cause.
The 5K entry fee is $20. The 1-Mile Fun Run fee is $15 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 purchase
one for $10. T-shirts are guaranteed to all those who register
by March 10, 2021. After that date, they will be “as available”.
PACKET PICK UP
Early packet pick up will be on Thursday, March 25th, from
4:30 – 7 pm at Bond Brothers Beer Company, 202 E Cedar St, Cary, NC 27511
