About the Race
2017 Chase the Chief Fun Run & 5k
Benefiting students in our GISD schools
Sunday, March 5 2017
Join us for the 5th annual Chase the Chief Chase 5k Run/Walk & Fun Run, a community event!
This years event will take place at the Georgetown Independent School District’s football stadium located at 2295 N Austin Avenue. This is a fun filled event for the entire family and serious runners, alike. Participants in both events will get the chance to “Chase” Georgetown Police Chief Wayne Nero, in the 5k race, and Assistant Police Chief Cory Tchida, in the Fun Run event.
Chase the Chief is a joint fitness initiative of the Georgetown Police Department and the Georgetown ISD Council of PTA. This event focuses on raising awareness about the devastating health, social , and economic impact of childhood obesity, encouraging behavior change among children and families to combat obesity, and exposing community members to fun physical activity, including a GPD obstacle course, fitness fair, and healthy snacks.
In addition to the 5k, we will be offering a Fun Run (ages 0-99+). The 5k Race and Fun Run will begin at the start/finish line located between the stadium and practice fields. A keepsake will be awarded to the participants who complete either race!
