Running of the Kids

The Viking 5K was held on June 4 for kindergarten through 12th grade students of Gibraltar Area Schools. The non-competitive 5K (3.1 mile) was the culminating event for Friends of Gibraltar’s “Food, Fun, and Fitness” theme for the 2014-15 school year.

All students in grades K-12, teachers, and staff were encouraged to walk or run the course along Gibraltar Road. Medals were presented at the finish line, and healthy snacks were provided in the football field area after the finish.

The Viking 5K was a collaborative event made possible through local business partnerships, Ministry Health, YMCA, and Gibraltar Area Schools.
