5K, Fun Run set May 1

Published 10:31 pm Tuesday, April 20, 2010

The Andalusia Junior Woman’s Club will have a 5K race and one-mile fun run as part of Three-Notch Market activities on May 1.

AJWC member Heather Mount said a pre-registration will be held at the Andalusia Chamber of Commerce on from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Fri., April 30.

“We want to get as many registered in advance as possible,” Mount said.

The 5K race will begin at 8 a.m. from the square. The route takes runners in the Andalusia High School “neighborhood” and ends at CCB Community Bank, where the fun run will begin at 9 a.m. The Fun run will be to Stanley Avenue and back, she said.

Walkers are welcome, Mount said.

Mount said there’s been lots of interest expressed in the 5K so far.

“I think it’s going to be a good race,” she said. “For local racing, we only have the Coterie Run (in the fall). For runners, it’s hard to do out-of-town events because they start so early. We hope to attract a lot of people who don’t always go to runs outside of town.”

Awards will be given to the top five male and female runners in the 5K and to the top five males and females 12 and under in the Fun Run.

Registration is $20 for the 5K, and $15 for the fun run. There also is a no T –shirt registration option for $10. Runners also may register at 7:30 a.m. on the day of the race.

The Three Notch Market art show will be held in the Farmer’s Market on Historic Central Street.
