Independence Day 5K slated

Thursday, June 26, 2003

The Ozark River Racers (ORR) is sponsoring the second annual Independence Day 5-K at the ASU Mountain Home campus on June 28, starting at 7:30 a.m. All participants will receive a race T-shirt.

Early registration is $15. Registration on the day of the race will begin at 6 a.m. All participants must be at the campus by 7 a.m. for pre-race instructions.

Race director Bonnie Brandsgaard said, "This year, more walkers are registering for our 5-K. Since more and more people are walking for their health, we ordered extra T-shirts and metals."

ORR President Kent Graham said, "The membership hopes to bring people together to celebrate the founding of our country. The event will be an experience not to be forgotten as the race begins with the national anthem. Whether supporters gather on the sidewalk or participants walk or run the course, everyone will share a very positive feeling."

Brandsgaard said, "The winners' awards feature the colors of the American flag, and we are excited about our bright colored shirts. We have all shirt sizes so entire families can participate."

For registration forms, call Bonnie Brandsgaard at 870-492-6687.
