The Bar-H Barbeque LionChase 5K is Friday, April 12, at Royston Wellness Park. All proceeds benefit the mission trip fund for students at Emmanuel.
The Family Fun Run is free for all ages, and the 5K is $15 or $5 with an Emmanuel College ID.
Start times are 7 p.m. for the free Family Fun Run and 7:15 p.m. for the 5K run/walk. Race day registration begins at 5:30 p.m. T-shirts are guaranteed only to the first 100 runners who preregister online at http://www.goeclions.com/article/845.php.
“The purpose of this event is to ensure that every student has the opportunity to participate in mission trips at Emmanuel College,” says Margaret Turner, race coordinator and associate campus pastor of service learning. "Going on a mission trip is often life-changing for a student, and we want to make sure no one is denied that opportunity because of financial difficulty.”
On race day, you may also buy raffle tickets at $5 each for a drawing for a Runner’s Dream Gift Package valued at $200 redeemable at Athens Running Company, proud supporters of Emmanuel College's cross country and track teams.
Please arrive early enough to take care of payment. Bring the exact amount or make checks payable to Emmanuel College.
