For years now, the Tronmoss 5k has been a staple on the local F3 calendar. Well, except last year. It is THE premier 5k event held in Dallas NC before 8 am and each time is a little better than before. This year will be no different.

Opportunity – My friend Nick aka 4-Leaf called me while I was driving to the beach last week and told about a sad story of domestic violence where a guy shot his wife in the head and killed her in front of their teenage daughter late last year in Pitt County.


Some HIMs from F3 ENC and their local FiA are raising money to help out the daughter through the Love Shouldn’t Hurt 5/10k on 4/17 and he asked if I could help spread the word and get some guys involved.

Solution – I am Qing this years Tronmoss 5k as a virtual opportunity to participate and help out. We are adding a 10k this year too! You can choose to run a 5k, run a 10k, or ruck a 5k. A $10 donation is encouraged to participate (of course, NOT required!…F3 is free). It will be held during Crossroads at 6:30 am, starting and finishing at Ingles in Dallas, NC.

Option 1 – You can register officially here for the Love Shouldn’t Hurt 5/10k event here: https://checkout.square.site/buy/LBEQSD5RYGGRWLCBLY5X4I6H

Registration includes a commemorative patch. Simply register and add your F3 name as well as F3 Gastonia. Nick will send your patch to me amd I’ll distribute them. They will look good on on ruck bag or if you collect patches (it’s a rucker thing). 4-Leaf donated the patches and is giving 100% of the patch proceeds to the cause. Even if you dont want a patch, you can register to donate and just note you don’t want the patch.

Option 2 – I will also gather cash donations at Crossroads Sunday 4/18 and donate them.
