GRC Races


Etowah Heroes

GRC's first organized 5k has grown into one of the most successful 5ks in Etowah County.  The Etowah Heroes 5K raises money for the heroes who protect our community.  All money raised goes to the Etowah County Sheriff's Reserve Unit for all that they do for us.


Kid's Superhero Bolt

The Kidz Superhero Bolt 5k & 1 Mile Run is a kids only (14 & under) race through downtown Gadsden.  This race is meant to give kids a true race experience and foster a love of running.  All proceeds go to the GRC Youth Division's Summer Running Program. 


Noccalula Spring Trail Run

The Noccalula Spring Trail 1/2 Marathon & 5 Miler takes place at Beautiful Noccalula Falls.  Proceeds for this race go to help further trail development and fund trail maintenance of the Black Creek Trail System. The trails are multi-use and benefit the entire community.
