Each fall Graland families and friends gather in Washington Park to celebrate the new school year with the Graland Gallop, a 5K run/walk/wheelchair race for participants of all ages. Following its impromptu introduction last year, the 100-yard Dads’ Dash will be back as will the 1K Buddy Run and kids’ 100-yard dash, offering younger children a chance to join in the fun. Prizes are awarded to the top finishers in each category for the 5k race; finisher ribbons are awarded for all other events. The start line is located on the east side of the park near the S. Franklin and E. Mississippi entrance.
 
Early bird cost is $25 per person before September 17; regular price is $30. Proceeds from the Gallop provide support to the school for a variety of needs as identified by the administration.
 
Sponsorship opportunities are available, offering perks such as a family’s name or company logo on race bibs, t-shirts banners and other Gallop promotional materials. Click to learn more!
