Free Tacky Sweater 5k



Welcome to the 4th Annual Tacky Sweater 5k! We are very excited to announce that this race will continue to be FREE! Our philosophy at Southside is that it should not be expensive to participate in a fun activity that will improve your health – so we have made our fundraiser to reflect that! We will have several Southside XC tshirts, past race tshirts, water bottles, and tacky sweater tumblers available for donation on race day so we can continue to fund this race and our team. This is a 100% non-profit event and all proceeds will be donated to Southside Cross Country!
This 5K race is a pure cross country course with the exception of a few crossings.

Once the race has concluded, Fleet Feet will be there to award the winning prizes.

There will be SHSXC items available for donation. To give an online donation, please visit and put “Southside Cross Country” in the memo line — otherwise the money will not go to our team! Thanks for supporting our program!

Please use the student entrance on Frontage Rd. If coming from Whitehorse Road, turn onto frontage and the entrance will be on your left. If coming from Augusta Road, turn onto frontage road and the entrance will be on your right.

Every finisher will receive a medal from past GTC races to reflect the “tackiness” of our race. 🙂
Fleet Feet will be onsite to award prizes for the top 3 finishers as well as prizes for the tackiest sweaters!
