About The Event
My Best Day 5k and Kids Dash is a fundraiser for the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund. Please join us as we celebrate the memory of a boy that was a light to not only his family, but everyone that knew him. All monies raised will go to the Jake Arntson Memorial Fund through the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation, which will fund the Jake Arntson Teammate of the Year Scholarship. These scholarships will be awarded to three C.M. Russell and three Great Falls High School student-athletes that demonstrate the qualities of an exceptional teammate in their sport. There are as many walkers as runners, all are welcome.

Packet Pick-up

My Best Day Course
Participants will start on the River’s Edge Trail behind The Front/Staybridge Inn & Suites running towards to federal courthouse. You will take a left onto the Central Avenue walking bridge. At the end of the bridge, take a left onto River’s Edge Trail heading towards Gibson Park. You will cross River Road at the designated spot, which will be manned. You will run under the railroad overpass and take a right into Gibson Park heading towards the Children’s Museum. Continue running around the loop towards the pond. Take a right out of Gibson Park to head back under the railroad overpass and head back the way you came. There will be water/aid station at the half-way point.

Kids Dash
The kids get an opportunity to show their stuff. At the finish of the 5k there will be a course set up for the kids. They have two options: one lap or two laps. The kids can do either one or both. There will be a chance to win a bike.
