CLINTON — Northside Elementary is gearing up for the annual Arrow Dash 5k Run/Walk and one-mile kids color run.


“We are excited about the sixth year for this race,” said Beth Shepherd, race chairperson. “Not only does it help fund our PTO, it promotes the healthy lifestyle we encourage in our school system and it enables our students and families to engage in a healthy family activity together.”


The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 22 on Arrow Drive in front of Northside Elementary School. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m., the 5K Run/Walk begins at 8 a.m. and the one-mile color run begins at 9 a.m.


The cost for the 5K is $20 if pre-registered by Sept. 17, or $25 on race day. The fee for the fun run is $15 if you pre-register or $20 on race day.


Families may pre-register for $60 for up to five people, or $70 the day of the race. All members must fill out the registration form together.


“You can also be a ghost runner for $20, which includes a T-shirt,” Shepherd said. “The T-shirt must be picked up at the race but you do not have to race.”


Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners in Open, Master's and Grand Master's divisions. First, second and third place will be awarded to specific age groups in these categories: Male & Female 5K Run, Male & Female 5K Walk and one-mile color run.


Sisu Race Timing will direct the race. Register at Clinton Back to School Nights or at Active.Com. T-shirts are guaranteed for participants registered by Oct. 5.
