The Clayton State University Alumni Association and the Atlanta Southside Runners will team up on Saturday, Feb. 18 for the first time for a 5K Run/Walk, “Run Clayton State.”
The race, which will be held on the University’s campus and surrounding neighborhood, will be part of Clayton State’s Homecoming festivities that same day.
Registration for the race will begin at 7:45 a.m. on the Clayton State campus, with the race beginning at 9 a.m. Cost for participants will be $15 before Feb. 10, $20 for participants after Feb. 10, and $25 on race day. Family rates will also be available for runners of three or more.
All runners will receive a T-shirt and age group winners will be recognized with awards. A special grand prize will be awarded to the top female and male winners. The event will also include breakfast after the race along with sponsor gifts.
Proceeds from the race will benefit two worthy fundraising efforts. A portion of the funds will support the Clayton State Alumni Association scholarship program, and a portion will be donated to the Zac Bradley Benefit Fund. Bradley, a member of the Clayton State men’s basketball team, was partial paralyzed last spring when a tree fell on his car during a storm and the proceeds will help cover incurred medical expenses.
Participants can register online at www.active.com or at www.clayton.edu/alumnigift. Downloadable registration forms can be accessed at www.revolutionrunning.net, www.rungeorgia.com or www.clayton.edu/homecoming.
