Glow Run 5K signups still go­ing for Novem­ber 8 event

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS -

Signups con­tinue for the Cedartown United Methodist Church’s third an­nual Glow Run in Novem­ber.

The 5K fun run and walk is be­ing held on Sun­day, Nov. 8, this year in or­der to ac­com­mo­date the po­lice depart­ment, who oth­er­wise would be forced to work ex­tra overtime to help with the event fol­low­ing Hal­loween.

The race will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Cedartown UMC church park­ing lot, and par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to deck them­selves out in neon and sport glow-inthe-dark paint for the event.

Joe Colquitt, the chil­dren and youth di­rec­tor at Cedartown UMC along with be­ing the Parks and Recre­ation as­sis­tant di­rec­tor for the City of Cedartown, said that even push­ing it back a week, the event should draw a large num­ber of run­ners for the evening event.

He said more than 100 par­tic­i­pants have taken part in the run for the past two years.

Colquitt went be­fore the city com­mis­sion on Sept. 14 ask­ing for per­mis­sion once again to hold the run. They unan­i­mously ap­proved.

“It’s just a fun event to watch,” said com­mis­sioner Gary Martin.

All money raised through regis­tra­tions will be split be­tween the Cedartown United Methodist Church and the Parks and Recre­ation Depart­ment.

Colquitt said signups have al­ready started and pre- reg­is­tra­tion costs are $20 for each run­ner who par­tic­i­pates. Race pack­ets can be picked up at Stu­dio Fit or the gym at the Bert Wood Youth and Ath­letic Cen­ter, also known as North­west Park.

Pre-reg­is­tra­tion ends on Satur­day, Oct. 31.

T-shirts will be in­cluded for those who sign up early.

More in­for­ma­tion can be had at 678-822-6260.

Those who wish to mail in checks for race reg­is­tra­tion can do so to First United Methodist Church, 201 Wis­sahickon Ave., Cedartown, 30125.
