Guns & Hoses 5K

Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency will be hosting its 14th annual 5K Run/Walk and Fun Run on February 22, 2020. The purpose of the run is to raise money for charity causes selected by both groups. This year, the charity for CCFD will be The Goshen Valley Boys Ranch which is a non-profit home serving young men in the state foster care system. The charity for Cherokee Sheriff’s Office will be the Cherokee Sheriffs Foundation which is dedicated to helping families locally in Cherokee County. When registering, you will pick the team that you want to represent and a portion of your fee will go towards their chosen charity. Shirts will be made available in your race packet for all 5K participants only. (Shirt size selections will be guaranteed for those that register by February 9th ONLY). All 1 mile Fun Run participants will earn a commemorative medal. For the 5K race, awards will be given in both male and female divisions and in a variety of age groups as well.
