Get 2017 started right with the Third Annual Resolution 5K on Saturday

Hosted by the Forum and Salisbury Rowan Runners, the Third Annual Resolution Run 5K is set for Saturday morning, Dec. 31. The event begins at the Forum at 9 a.m. and is somewhat different than most road races because no awards will be given. Every single dollar of proceeds will benefit Rowan Helping Ministries and all walkers and runners of all capabilities are encouraged to participate.

All who do participate will get refreshments and an accurate time on a precisely measured course. The first 200 registrants will get a dri-fit T-shirt. Entry fees are $5 and three canned goods or $10. All additional donations will be gladly accepted.

A printable race brochure is available at www.salisburyrowanrunners.org. The completed brochure can be mailed in or dropped off at the Forum along with the fee. Race registration will be available on Saturday morning from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m.

Come out to just have an enjoyable run/walk with several hundred of your friends and benefit a great cause at the same time. Additional sponsors include the City of Salisbury, the Salisbury Post and Novant Health. Call 704-310-6741 with any questions.
