Share with friends


Valdosta, GA – Every year, Saint John the Evangelist Catholic School (SJCS) welcomes racers to join one of the largest racing events in the area and this year, like so many other events, things are going to be a bit different. SJCS’s 20th annual Road Race takes place virtually on Saturday, October 31. 

“We love hosting this annual 5K and inviting everyone in the community to participate, and this year we had to get a little bit creative,” said SJCS Principal Vito Pellitteri. “Although we are not hosting the event on campus, runners are invited to run wherever they are or wherever they would like to participate in spirit together.”

Runners participating in this event will run their own 5K on Saturday, October 31 and then submit their race times, via email to st.johnsroadrace@gmail.com before midnight to determine this year’s award recipients.

Winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 4 at 8:00 PM EST on Titletown Theology, which can be viewed online at https://www.facebook.com/titletowntheology/. Winners will be chosen for the first and second place finishers in each age division, the fastest male and female for both the 5K and one mile races and the fastest male and female over 40 years old for the 5K. There are several entry levels to select from, starting with Eaglet for $15 to Golden Eagle for $60 which includes a race big, t-shirt, medal and SJCS umbrella.

Registration is open now through Friday, October 30 2020 online at https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Valdosta/StJohnRoadRace. Additional information can be found on the school’s website at SJCSValdosta.org.
