ANDALUSIA, ALA. – As part of its fundraising efforts for the 2012 Covington County campaign, PowerSouth’s Relay For Life team is sponsoring its first ever 5K Resolution Run/Walk on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2012.
The race will start and finish at Andalusia City Hall. The road course will travel through several Andalusia neighborhoods surrounding Andalusia High School. Participants should be at the starting line at 8:45 a.m. for a 9 a.m. start.
“I think participants will be very pleased with the route selected for the race,” said Michael Davis, PowerSouth employee and Resolution Race Chairman. “There are a few moderately steep hills along the course, but runners and walkers of all skill levels are welcome.”
Pre-registrations for the first ever Resolution Race/Walk will be accepted through Dec. 14. Registration forms are online at www.active.com and www.runningintheusa.com. Entry fees are $25 for participants 13 years or older and $20 for participants 12 and younger. Race-day registrations are accepted from 7:30 to 8:30 at Andalusia City Hall. The race will be conducted rain or shine.
Participants have to pre-register by Dec. 14 to be assured a long-sleeve t-shirt. The overall male and female first place finishers will be awarded $50 prizes. Medals will go to the first place male and female in each age division. Post-race prizes will be awarded and winners announced in the City Hall Auditorium.
