The Kirk Goodwin Run is an event held annually at ACU to support local families who have come upon hard times. Looking back at Kirk Goodwin’s, class of 1985, legacy leading the young men of Galaxy to honor his legacy by creating a foundation that would be dedicated to enriching the lives of those in need.
The KGR 5K class is put on by the SRWC as a, “good place to start” for anyone trying to gain endurance and stamina. Providing face to face coaching by graduate student Eddie Boyer, and a low student to coach ratio, you’ll get personalized coaching towards your bodies running tendencies. A rare opportunity in this day in age. This class, which currently only has around ten students registered, could accomodate ten to twenty more students. Only lasting three weeks, you pay thirty five dollars for six class sessions over a three week span. This class fee also covers your race fee and as well as gets you the race shirt. Quite a bargain considering the race fee itself is thirty dollars.
The Kirk Goodwin Run is scheduled for Saturday, April twenty first and the race kicks off at nine am. The five kilometer race starts just down from the corner of Campus Court and and EN 16th street. It typically takes runners between 30 minutes and a hour and thirty minutes to complete the race, while more experienced runners could finish within twenty minutes.
