Kids' Zone

Brought to you by: Restoration Church

Make sure to bring the whole family on race day because this year's Grey Ghost 5k has something for everyone! Bring the kids over to the Kids Zone, where they can bounce around in one of the inflatables or try their hands at carnival- style games like Turkey Shoot and ring toss -- all for free!

The Kids Zone is run by Restoration Church and Jump for Joy Inflatables as an expression of their heart for our Spring Hill community. For more information, check out their website through the link below or feel free to ask any of the workers on Race Day.

Goblin Gallop

The Goblin Gallop gives children two race choices based on age and fitness level. Our first run, that takes place immediately following the Grey Ghost 5K Awards Ceremony, and is for children in 2nd – 5th grades. This course is approximately 1K in distance and encompasses much of the Oaklawn property.

At the conclusion of the 1K run, our Pre-K, Kindergarteners and 1st graders will run a 1/2K loop around the main house property. We encourage the kids to watch the weather the night before and dress appropriately. The run takes place rain or shine…30 degrees or 70 degrees. Parents are welcomed to run with their children in the younger age groups. Family friendly Halloween costumes are always welcomed. Last year’s Goblin Gallop had over 500 runners! Runners receive a finish line token at the end of the race.

Please Note: All children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult 18 and older at all times. Parents participating in the 5k must arrange for supervision during the race.

Race Awards

Beautiful Grey Ghost plagues are awarded for 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place in each age group (men's and women's) in 5 year increments starting at 9 – 10 going all the way to 75+. Men's Overall, Women's Overall, and Master's Awards are also presented.
