Pike County American Legion 5/10K Run/Walk for Veterans: Molena

MOLENA - The Pike County American Legion Family is hosting its fourth 5K/10K Run/Walk fundraiser to be held on 6 May 2017. There is a choice between a 5K and a 10K course starting at the Molena City Park Pavilion on GA 18 and Spring Road Molena, Georgia. Depending on the course chosen, participants will enjoy historic sights of Molena, scenic homes, and vistas of Pike County country roads, countryside, and farm activity.

Participants can either walk, run, or walk/run either of the courses. It is not a race; there is no mass start. Participants can arrive and start at their leisure any time between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Each course will be marked and will have rest areas where participants will get their card marked and can partake in assorted refreshments to help them through the course. This is a great family event or individual fitness workout.

Early pre-registration is $25. Late registration is $35 after 29 April 2017 and day of the event. All who register will get a nice looking event T-shirt (see attached flyer) and free event snacks and beverages. Each registrant is guaranteed a T-shirt. Due to late registration, T-shirt may not be available on the day of the event; however, one will be mailed. So, register early and wear your T-shirt on your walk/run. Those who registered, but could not attend, a T-shirt will be mailed.
