Decatur SGA Earth Day 5k Race Description

Race Info:

The inaugural SGA Earth Day 5k is a 5-kilometer race in Legacy Park that will occur on April 29, 2023 at 3:00 pm. The event is organized by the Decatur High School Student Government Association (SGA) and is a fundraiser for SGA's future sustainability efforts and Decatur Track and Field. Specifically, SGA plans to use the money raised to implement a composting program at Decatur High School in the 2023-2024 school year. Composting has proven to be an expensive endeavor with a high startup cost in getting compostable cafeteria trays and utensils, and monthly rates that are spent on the continuation of pickups. A portion of the profits will also be given to the Decatur High School Track and Field team. In addition to the 5k, there will be sprint races and activities for younger children, music, prizes, and food vendors. 

4/28 update:

The Earth Day 5k run will be 3 pm this Saturday! Please plan to arrive 30 min to an hour in advance to collect your bib and shirt. The race will start and end at the Legacy Park basketball court. If you prefer to receive your shirt after the race, please let the volunteer working know and they will accommodate your preferences. 

The weather is looking to be very hot so make sure to hydrate. We will have a water station halfway through the race, but we encourage that you bring extra for yourself. There will also be an assortment of fruits for our runners, and a King of Pops stand. The tot-trot will take place at the same time as the race. We will have a photographer on-site to capture the best moments during the 5k.
