The 4th Annual Vandiver Church of God “Anchored” 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run takes place on a scenic course throughout the heart of Vandiver, AL at the foothills of Vandiver Mountain. It is a CHIP TIMED event. Instant results on big screen TV. Awards will be given to the top runners in each category at the end of the race.
It starts at the church and continues through several turns and curves and finishing back at the church parking lot. At the perfect time when the leaves are changing, you are sure to enjoy the colors of the beautiful trees and mountainside scenery.
This event is being held in memory of our former Youth Pastor, Joshua Mardis. He loved the Lord and was a friend to all he came in contact with. Please join us in his honor by “Running for Hope”. Part of the proceeds will go to a scholarship for a high school senior in his honor (Joshua M. Mardis Scholarship).
Hebrews 6:19 – “We have this HOPE as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure…”
