SOUTH BEND, IN — This year’s 5K celebration begins at Four Winds Field and travels out and back through downtown South Bend. Spectators can cheer for participants along the course which reflects our ongoing effort to provide the safest possible course for our girls.

The annual GOTR 5K Celebration invites community participants to run with and enjoy the spirit of more than 700 4th and 5th graders throughout Michiana schools as they complete their first 5K.
