Gem City 10K Series2014 will be the inaugural year of the Key Sports Gem City 10K Series. The running community was founded on the 10K (6.2 mile) distance, but with the popularity of 5Ks, it has become more difficult to find a 10K distance event. Through a mix of both established races and newer events, Key Sports has partnered with a number of great organizations to offer 10Ks throughout the year.
This series is unique because it offers participants ten events from which to choose. Additionally, runners can earn a 10K series hoodie with the completion of six events. Series award winners will earn an embroidered jacket. Check back often, as we'll be updating this page with registration information!
