Program Description: 2021’s Ghostly Gallop 5K will be another virtual race!
Participants can register online at ghostlygallop.info, then run or walk a 5K between October 16 and 31, and submit their time on the Ghostly Gallop website. The fastest men and women runners will receive a Cranna Cup, the traditional trophy for the race’s top finishers. Every participant will receive a free t-shirt, which are available in men’s and women’s sizes.
This year, Ghostly Gallop participants are also encouraged to raise their own funds in support of the library, as part of participating in the race. It’s easy to do: When you register on ghostlygallop.info, you’ll receive info about how to set a fundraising goal, and you can track your progress against others fundraisers. Prizes will be awarded to the top individual and team fundraisers in the Ghostly Gallop Fundraising Contest.
The library is still considering holding a small event for children ages 12 and under on Halloween at the Jr./Sr. High School. The library board will make that decision in the next few weeks, based on the public health situation, so stay tuned!
We are also looking for sponsors to help offset the costs of the race and to provide prizes to winning fundraisers. Anyone interested in sponsoring the race should visit the Ghostly Gallop website.
Date/Time: Saturday-Sunday, October 16-31.
Registration: Runners and walkers can learn more and register at ghostlygallop.info.
