Race Overview

Join us for the 1st Annual Touch of Grace 5K and Fun Run on Friday, June 30th at 6:30pm!  The course route is the Morganton Greenway, starting at the Catawba Meadows access area.  Your canine friends are encouraged to join you for the event!


A donation will be made out of the proceeds of the event to A Touch of Grace, a non-profit animal welfare fund established in memory of Gracie Avery, a sixteen year old beagle mix, that passed away in December 2016. A Touch of Grace animal welfare fund was established to benefit animals that are in need of medical care, love, and a touch of grace. As a new fund, A Touch of Grace needs your help to expand its capacity for helping animals in need.
