Ready to Run?

2014 Results are posted! Thank you all for a great race!


Brief Description

The Getz 5K is a yearly fund-raising fun run, sponsored by The Bridge Community Church of Morrisville, NC for the family of Stephen Getzelmann. Stephen died suddenly from a Strep-A infection in December of 2011. This is the Church’s way of giving back and supporting his family.

Proceeds from this event will go to the Getzelmann Fund whose mission is to support widows, orphans, and causes near to the heart of Stephen Getzelmann. Proceeds from the 2013 race were given to Comfort Zone Camp, a bereavement camp for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary care giver. This year, we are again proud to partner with The Town of Morrisville in making this a great day for Stephen’s family and our community!

Starting Times

The 5K will begin at 9:00 am.

After the 5k, we will also have a free 50 yard dash for preschoolers. Thanks to our sponsor Kids ‘R’ Kids, each preschooler will get their own cape to wear during the run! No registration necessary.

Packet Pick-Up

Packet Pick-up is from 3-7pm on Friday, November 7 at Omega Sports in Morrisville (3025 Market Center Dr.). You will receive your bib #, t-shirt, and other goodies from our sponsors.

It’s also an early chance to enter our raffles so take a look at the prizes and see which ones you want to try and win!

Course Info

The 5K course has been certified and is an out and back with two water stations provided along the way.

Entry Fees/T-Shirts

The entry fee for the 5k is $30. The fee includes a t-shirt – guaranteed for all those who are registered by Oct 26th. After that date t-shirts will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To encourage students toward physical fitness, we offer a $20 entry fee for students and teachers as part of our School Spirit Challenge!

5K Awards

Awards will be presented to the first three males overall, the first three females overall, and to the top finisher in each of the following age groups (both sexes): 19-under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 – over.

Other activities

In addition to the 5k, there will be activities for the entire family including face painting, balloon animals, raffle items and a bounce house.

We are excited to announce that we will once again have a performance by the national award winning Cary YMCA SuperSkippers! They were a HUGE hit last year and you will not want to miss their performance after the race.

Take a look at the raffle prizes you could win, including a chance to meet Brad Paisley and see him in concert with 3 other friends!
