Second Annual Race 2 Read 5K in McDonough

McDonough - Enjoy a day of exercise and fresh air while supporting literacy in the community, by taking part in the second annual Race 2 Read 5K, to be held on Sunday, October 2 at 3:00 p.m.

Hosted by The Friends of the Henry County Libraries, proceeds from the event help to purchase books and materials as well as fund programs for Henry County libraries. Participants may also bring their gently used books to donate to the library for immediate shelf use or sale. No textbooks, please.

The run will take place in Westridge Industrial Park in McDonough and packet pickup and registration begins at 2:00 p.m. The course is within the industrial park and is part of the Run and See Georgia and Clover Glove series. Because the race is affiliated with the Clover Glove series, $1 per runner will go towards 4-H scholarships statewide.

Awards will be presented to fastest male and female overall, masters, and grandmasters, as well as the top three in five separate age groups, ranging from 10 and under through 75+. T Shirts will be given to all participants who preregister and while supplies last.  

Registration fee is $18 by September 16 and $20 thereafter and on race day. Checks should be made payable to Friends of Henry Libraries.
