Sat. (Oct. 14, 2023) 8:00AM (start time) Eighth Annual GR8T CHASE 5K run/walk at Gateway Island (1875 W. College St.; Murfreesboro). This event helps to support area childhood cancer patients and other children diagnosed with a life altering illness. Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. Race organizer Jennifer Yeatts said, “This year is a big milestone because 8 was Chase's favorite number. He said it was like the infinity symbol, no beginning, and no end.”  Event proceeds benefit children and their families in our community whose lives have been disrupted by illness.

The 5K race is professionally chip timed with trophies for the top male and female overall finishers, and medals (gold, silver, and bronze) in seven age divisions (10-year increments).

  • Registration is $35 for the run/walk, and $30 for a virtual, T-Shirt only option, available for those who wish to participate but cannot attend.
  • All entries registered before October 1, 2023, include a Gr8t Chase Forget Me Not 5K race shirt.
  • Register or find out more information on Vendor Spaces ($50) or Sponsorship Opportunities online at http://thegr8tchase.org
