About the event
My Best Day 5k and Kids Dash is a fundraiser for the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund. Please join us as we celebrate the memory of a boy that was a light to not only his family, but everyone that knew him. All monies raised will go to the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund/GFPS Foundation, which in turn will be used to fund The Jake Arntson Teammate of the Year Scholarships. These scholarships will be awarded to three student-athletes at C.M. Russell High School that best demonstrate the qualities of an exceptional teammate.
Participants will have two options for packet pick-up: Saturday 5:00 to 7:00 pm at The Front and Sunday from 1:30 to 2:45 pm at The Front, 201 3rd Street Northwest, Great Falls, MT.
My Best Day Course
Participants will gather on the River’s Edge Trail behind The Front/Staybridge Inn & Suites and run towards the federal courthouse. You will take a left onto the Central Avenue West walking bridge. At the end of the bridge, take a left onto the River’s Edge Trail. You will continue on the trail until you cross River Road at the designated area, which will be manned. You will continue on the trail towards the skate park going under the railroad overpass to enter Gibson Park. You will take a right once you enter Gibson Park heading towards the Children’s Museum. Continue to run the big loop around the pond. Take a right to exit Gibson Park going through the same underpass and head back the way you came. There will be a water/aid station half-way through the course.
The kids will have an opportunity to show their stuff. At the finish line of the 5k, there is a course set up for the kids to run. There will be two races: one lap or two laps. Of course, kids are welcome to participate in either one or both. Parents and fans will be able to stand in the center of the course and cheer them on.
