28 Super Signs from Spring 5Ks

The spring 2023 5K Celebration season is just winding down and, wow, did our councils knock it out of the park. From first-time 5K events (shout out to GOTR Tulare & Fresno Counties) to all-time high 5K attendance records (hello, GOTR South Central Wisconsin), the spring 2023 season concluded in unforgettable days that will inspire us for the rest of the year. Throughout every event across the country, families, friends, and community supporters cheered our teams on from start the finish. Whether it was a morning of rain or an afternoon of sunshine, the sidelines were consistently filled with encouraging cheers, loud claps and vibrant signs. In fact, there were so many awesome signs that we were inspired to create a blog and show them off! Are you ready for a fun recap of awesome handmade 5K signs?! On your mark, get set, READ! Enjoy 28 Super Signs from Spring 5Ks!
