Our annual 5k race on Labor Day (Monday, September 5, 2022) begins and ends at Sandy Bottom Park (602 East College Street).  This is home to the Town's miniature golf course and par-3 course.  We welcome participants of all ages and fitness levels. T-shirts are guaranteed to those registered by Sunday, August 21, 2022. After that, t-shirts will be available while supplies last. Prizes for overall winners and age groups will be awarded. Pre-registration is $15 per entry for ages 17 & under and $20 for ages 18 & over until August 21.  After that date, fees increase to $20 (ages 17 & under) and $25 (ages 18 & over) per entry.  Online registration ends on Friday, September 2 at midnight. You can also register at the Sandy Bottom Park picnic shelter on race day from 7:00 am to 7:30 am. Paper registration forms will be available on-site, and we only accept cash or checks.  All participants can play mini-golf and par-3 golf for free that day! Just show your bib number, and you and your family can play miniature golf from noon to 10 pm. The same applies to the par-3 golf course, except you can play immediately following the race. 

We are excited to again partner with the American Cancer Society!  Please consider making a donation when you register for the race.
