Cherokee Scholars at Reinhardt University is a scholarship program specifically for Cherokee County residents. The program helps fund the University’s Cherokee County Grant Program, which provides eligible students the opportunity to receive as much as $8,000 during their four years at Reinhardt University. More than $5.2 million in scholarships has been awarded to deserving local students.

Don't want to run in-person?
Sponsor a student or run virtually!

While Reinhardt University will take safety precautions to make this event possible, we understand if you're not ready to join us in person. However, you can still participate! By sponsoring a student to run, you will allow for a Reinhardt University student to compete in the race, and you still get to support Cherokee Scholars!

Want to run in your own personal Born to Run 5K? Join us virtually by registering here and indicating you are a virtual runner in the comment box, or by adding (virtual) after your first name. We will send you a T-shirt and a certificate to celebrate your race!

Mask Up and
Social Distance on race day!

We're excited to see everyone at the race, however, we are still working to slow the spread of COVID-19 during this pandemic. That means gathering in a fun and safe way. Please wear a face mask on the day of the race and social distance during registration and warm-up. Or, show your school and Halloween Spirit, wear a festive mask or face covering.

Our award ceremony, typically held at the close of the race, will be livestreamed on Facebook. Once you cross that finish line, you are good to go home and shower, celebrate or refuel with some brunch. Regardless of what you do, be sure to tune in to the Reinhardt University Facebook page to virtually attend our award ceremony. Winners will receive their awards by mail.
