For children, the Dorsal Fin Dash is an ideal, fun family activity. It begins at 9 a.m. and takes place entirely on the Greer "back 40" under close and enthusiastic supervision. Parents can watch their children from start to finish!

Hardy runners love the 5k run, which begins at 9:30 and winds through the scenic tree-lined environs of historic North Glynn County, starting and finishing adjacent to our school.

The Cool Shark 5k is a USATF (USA Track and Field) certified course, and we welcome many participants from outside our community. The Cool Shark 5k welcomes walkers and partiticipants with strollers. Sorry, no dogs, skateboards, bicycles, or roller blades in either race.

As always, our volunteers who work on the tasks below make the race day successful.
