A 5K night run/1 mile walk on the Riverwalk will take place this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.. The event will start at Shelter #4 in Riverpark next to the Hubert Fry Center, 4501 Amnicola Hwy.  This is a “glow” event. Glow-in-the-dark items and T-shirts will be available to all participants as part of the registration fee.  There will be warm-up activities, and following the race there will be free concessions for T-shirt wearing participants. 

Awards will be given to runners with the best times.  All ages are welcome.  Wish to register the day of the event? Organizers will be ready to assist you at 6 p.m.
