Jackson County Parks & Rec

Are you discouraged by having your favorite events canceled? Well so are we! As you know, we annually host The Greening Up The Mountains Festival 5k Race. Unfortunately with the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival has been canceled.

But you are in luck! We are hosting the 5k with a twist. It will be a virtual race!

The Spring 2020 Virtual 5k is open for registration‼?

Click on the link below for details. Remember…this can be done ANYWHERE! Greenway, road, trail, treadmill, run, walk, take your dog, push a stroller. ANYWHERE! Just remember to practice social distancing protocol!

You’ll have 48 hours (9am 4/24-9am 4/26) to post your results. All of those who register and post results will get a SWEET commemorative t-shirt for this virtual event. HannaCole’s is working on our design.

Local folks, we will set up a no-contact, easy pick up for your shirts. Out of town folks, we will mail your’s to you.
