Railroad Days 2017

RR Days Champions 2017 George Carter Jr. and Braylee Gilmore

Such a beautiful cool day for the 5k and kids run. We had a great turnout, but could always use more. Invite your friends to have a special time at Galesburg's Annual Railroad Days 5k run. The kids run is 1/4 mile for kids under 8 and those parents who encourage their kids all the way down and back. It is a gran prix race for those Road Runner members. All it takes is 100 points and then you will receive awards at the annual banquet usually held in January.
