The sixth-annual United Way Scarecrow 5K Walk/Run is set to return Sept. 18.
“Once again we will be starting in the parking lot of Family Farm & Home with plenty of room to social distance,” said United Way of Fayette County President Debbie Bryant.
The route will run through the Storybrook neighborhood in the City of Washington Court House and back into the Family Farm & Home parking lot, 2100 Columbus Ave.
“We’ll also have our virtual event again this year if you would like to participate but don’t want to take part in the live event,” said Bryant.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and the 5K Walk/Run will begin at 9 a.m.
“This is our sixth-annual event and we hope to see many of you walking/running and enjoying the morning with us,” said Bryant. “We know the Chocolate Walk is that afternoon, so why not run/walk in the morning and be prepared for all that chocolate later in the day.”
All participants will receive a finisher’s medal, t-shirt and swag bag. Awards will be given for first, second and third place finishers — both male and female. The event is $30 pre-registration or $35 for the day of registration.
Registration is now open and there are several ways to register: www.tristateracer.com (search scarecrow) or you may pick up your application at The United Way office, located at 133 S. Main St. (lower level) in Washington C.H., or call 740-335-8932 with questions.
“All proceeds will help support The United Way of Fayette County and the funding of 25 non-profit agencies, from the unborn at The Life Pregnancy Center to our seniors at Commission on Aging, as well as our Dolly Parton Imagination Library, focusing on child literacy. We focus on the health, education and financial stability of all our residents,” said Bryant. “We look forward to seeing you on September 18th.”
