Catawba College will hold 5K Saturday

Assistant Athletic Director Craig Turnbull has announced the first Catawba College Athletics Fall 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday starting at 9 a.m.
The 5K will start at the Abernathy P.E. Center and proceed up Summit Avenue to West Innes Street and follow into the Crescent Golf Course area. Runners and walkers will then retrace the course back past the gymnasium and follow Yost Street into Shuford Stadium for a finish on the track.
Proceeds from the event will go for general support of 18 athletic programs at Catawba College. Current projects include a retaining fence for the soccer field and new cheerleader uniforms. A portion of the proceeds will also go to Rowan Helping Ministries. Catawba students are currently accepting pocket change at all athletic events to benefit Rowan Helping Ministries, the American Red Cross, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
All participants will receive a ticket to the Catawba/ Mars Hill football game slated for 7 p.m. Saturday. The first 100 entrants will receive a short sleeve dri-fit T-shirt. The top two overall finishers, both male and female, will receive a trophy. Awards will also be presented to the top three finishers in 18 age groups.
Food and drinks will be sponsored by Chartwells and Cheerwine. Additional sponsors are the Salisbury Rowan Runners, Salisbury Parks and Recreation Department, and the City of Salisbury.
For more information, contact Turnbull at 704-637-4475 or e-mail cturnbul@catawba. edu.
Registration is $20 by Wednesday and $25 after that.
