Race Description

The 3rd Annual Remembering Gunnar 5k will be Sat, Jan 13, 2018. Gunnar was my newborn son; we lost Gunnar at 12 days old due to a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD)/ Surgery Complications. Unfortunately, CHD’s are more common than most are aware.  There is no known cause for most CHDs. More information on CHD’s can be found at


The Annual 5K is a special date, as in our hearts, we are celebrating the birth of Gunnar. This year would of been his 3rd Birthday. Child-Loss Grief is unthinkable and since the 1st Annual Gunnar 5K, I have created Gunnar's Runners Racing for more "In Memory of" 5Ks as healing projects for families. Also I have embarked on a project of reviving an old forgotten cemetery (Gunnar's Resting Place) Paran Baptist Church Cemetery, PBCC. The proceeds of the Gunnar 5k goes towards this 501(C)3 non-profit organization, as we have many restoration projects to complete. More information on cemetery restorations can be found at https://www.ncptt.nps.gov/blog/cemetery-restoration-resources/

The 5K will be held at Paran Baptist Church located at 5641 Highway 42 Forsyth, GA 31029. It's minutes away from High Falls State Park and Dauset Trails.

The 5K is a Run, Walk or come to celebrate. Fun Run & Race will start at 9AM.

Prizes: Trophies for Top 3 Winners, Medals for Standard Age Groups, Masters, Raffles, & More.

For Kids we will have Fun Run, with prizes, bouncy house, and many other activities.

Lots of post race refreshments will be provided. All post race non-perishable food will be donated to heart families at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Pediatric Cardiac Units. Feel free to bring non-perishable food donations.

T-SHIRT DEADLINE 12/29/17!!!!!!
