The CK5K welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and ages. This 5K run/1M walk takes place on the Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School and adjacent University grounds, consisting of gravel, pavement, and track terrain. The course is stroller friendly. Professional chip timing is present, and results are posted online following the race. Awards and prizes given to the 1st male and female along with 1st place male and female in seven age groups:14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+.
The CK5K event raises funds to support the Carolyn Keen ’10 Memorial Scholarship that was started in memory of Carolyn Keen ‘10 who lost her life in a car accident in her junior year. Carolyn was a member of the Cross Country and Track team so a 5K is a perfect way to celebrate her talents and contributions to the Gwynedd community and keep her memory alive. The scholarship is awarded each year to a rising Junior at the high school who, like Carolyn, has displayed admirable dedication and commitment to her school, and whose family will benefit from the assistance with her tuition.
