A wave of runners gets going at the GO FAR Family 5K in May 2017.

GO FAR, a non-profit organization that promotes running, character and healthy eating among school students, lost its spring race last month because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Robin Lindsay, the program's founder, and Ruthan May, its program development manager, joined me for a recent Zoom interview to discuss:

  • How GO FAR has fared during the pandemic.
  • How the organization has maintained contact with families. 
  • What a GO FAR race on Nov. 14 could look like in a "new normal."
  • A new fitness route, to be unveiled on Wednesday's Global Running Day, around the Southside Recreation Center and the Southwest Heritage Greenway that is a partnership among GO FAR, the city of High Point's Parks & Recreation Department and the Southside Neighborhood Association.
  • A 20 Miles in 20 Days Virtual Challenge, coming in July.
  • How they've been inspired by running during the pandemic.
