Swamp Stomp 5K For Kaye In Eatonton

5K races around Lake OconeeThe past two days I’ve been walking for the first time since September. Right before our wedding I got bronchitis and as a result lost some weight. My tailor told me I couldn’t lose any more or my dress would be too big. I took that comment and ran with it. Straight to the nearest Mexican restaurant. I haven’t looked back since. With the amazing weather it’s felt so incredible to get outside and be active again after my five month hiatus. If you’re like me you might need a little inspiration to get up and get moving. The Swamp Stomp 5K For Kaye being held this Sunday at Gatewood Schools in Eatonton is just that!

Kaye Gregory Cheshire, formerly of Eatonton, who attended Gatewood Schools, passed away in July of 2006 from a brain aneurysm. Having been a stand-out athlete in her years at Gatewood, the Swamp Stomp is held in her honor to raise money for the school’s Female Athletic Program(s).

“All around she was incredible athlete,” said Cindy Gregory, Kaye’s sister-in-law and owner of On Cloud 9 in Eatonton. “She ran track, played basketball, and was good at anything she ever did. Gatewood Schools weight room is named after her.”

Sunday’s race activities include a 1 mile Fun Run starting at 2:30 p.m. and a 5K Road Race starting at 3:00. Race Day Registration is still open and is $20 per individual. A $10 “no shirt” registration is available anytime between now and Sunday. Awards will be given out in categories including Overall and Master Male/Female, Overall Gatewood Student Male/Female, Overall Gatewood Alumnus Male/Female, and Top Finishers in age groups beginning with 8 and under to 75 and over.
