A teacher relay as well
as a 5k and a 1 mile run/walk are part of this year’s 2017 ROAR Run sponsored
by the Woodland PTA on Sept. 29. The back-to-school event, which starts and
ends at Woodland Middle School in Gurnee, is open to the public.
The course begins and
ends at the school, but it will take participants behind the “back 9” trails of
the Bittersweet Golf Course. New this year is a partnership between the PTA
ROAR Run committee and Hi-Five Sports Gurnee to have ROAR Relays – a friendly
competition for Woodland teachers and staff with classic, old-school relay
races like a three-legged race and a potato sack race.
In addition to prizes
for top finishers of the races, the event will feature a silent auction, food
trucks, music, and booths from local sports teams and businesses.

3:30 p.m. –
Pre-registered packet pickup and race day registration
4:30 p.m. – ROAR Relay
5:00 p.m. – 1 mile run
