Rockin' Run for the Arts

Sat November 10, 2018 Clinton, NC 28328 US Directions



709 College St.
Clinton, NC US 28328


The Sampson Arts Council is excited to invite you to participate in our Rockin’ Run for the ARTS 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, November 10, 2018, in beautiful downtown Clinton, North Carolina. Our open-road course is a combination of flat terrain and a few hills to create a fun, but challenging run. You will ‘rock while you run’ as you encounter local musicians stationed at intervals along the route! We look forward to seeing all ages, walkers, runners and anybody willing to be a cheerleader along the way.

The start-line window will open at 8:30AM for the Fun Run and 9:00AM for the 5K at the Victor R. Small House in downtown Clinton. Make sure you plan to be at the race in plenty of time to enjoy pre-race festivities including music, dancing, and warm-up stretching! Stick around after the race and enjoy more music, local art vendors, food vendors and beer from Grog Row!

Packet Pick-up will take place Friday, November 9, from 5:00 - 7:00PM, at the Victor R. Small House, 709 College St. in Clinton. 

As a non-profit organization, the Sampson Arts Council is excited to present the Rockin' Run to raise money to support the arts in our community. To learn more about the Sampson Arts Council and their programming visit
