Following this year’s run, please join us in the Chapel to hear from Josh Cox, the American record holder in the 50K (31 miles). Not only will Josh talk about his experiences as a four-time U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier and three-time U.S. National Team member, but he will share his personal testimony and walk of faith. Refreshments, awards, and great door prizes will be handed out after Josh speaks. You will not want to miss this great opportunity to hear from one of America's top runners!

Additionally, the Dawson Neighborhood Block Party will take place immediately following Josh Cox and the award ceremony. We hope you and your family will enjoy the rest of the morning at the Neighborhood Block Party,  featuring inflatables, live music, train rides, food, climbing wall, jousting arena, puppet shows, friendly competitions, and more!
