Experience one of the oldest road runs in North Carolina. Except for last year due to the pandemic, the event has been held annually since 1979. Come be part of a running event with a long tradition and enjoy a run or walk on a USATF certified course primarily along streets lined with azaleas and dogwoods. Despite the safety limitations regarding the close gathering of large groups, participants can enjoy the new and revitalized area formerly the Cornerstone Commons, now called The Hub as well as the further extensions of the Streetscape improvements to Center Street. Our volunteers will observe safety precautions as necessary to facilitate another excellent event.

The Run for a Child – 42nd Annual Greater Goldsboro Road Run is facilitated by the Sunrise Kiwanis of Goldsboro. The event is a fundraiser to help support our purpose of assisting the children and youth of our community. The funds generated from event sponsorships and participants go toward financial support for over 20 local organizations that assist the needy children and youth of Wayne County.

Our 10K run, 5K Run/Walk, and 1-mile Fun Run routes are downtown again this year. The starting locations for all events will be near The Hub located at the Southeast intersection of Center and Chestnut Streets downtown in Goldsboro NC with staggered. Registration and Pre-Registration: The Hub, Southeast corner of S. Center Street and W. Chestnut Street downtown Goldsboro.
