Got Grit 5k – May 20, 2017 – Orange High School – Hillsborough NC

Bring the family!  This race was voted by Endurance Magazine as first runner-up “best kid-friendly race” in the Triangle!  The 5k race is on a certified course, and there is a one mile Fun Run and a Toddler Trot for the little runners.  Child care will be provided while parents run the 5k.  Profits from the race  go toward GRIT awards, special recognitions, and small scholarships for Orange County students.


Discover what it takes to GO when the mind and body say NO!  At we strongly believe that a person’s grit (hard work, determination, perseverance, self-discipline) combined with good social skills, is a better predictor of future success than IQ, standardized test scores, and grade point averages.

We will also have a one mile Fun Run/Walk and a Toddler Trot for the little runners. All participants in the one mile event receive medals. After the race enjoy the great refreshments: fruit, cookies, salty snacks and tasty homemade baked goods. After the award ceremony we will have a drawing for prizes. Child care will be provided while parents run the 5k. The race will be held, rain or shine.
