The New Year is upon us, and that means that the Eleventh Annual Twilight Stroll running event is quickly approaching.
Having grown more and more each year, the event is poised to draw in even more runners this year.
The Twilight Stroll became apart of the Run and See Georgia Grand Prix last year, which helped bolster the participant numbers.
This year’s race is slated to take place on Friday, January 10th, 2014.
Elbert County Chamber President Phyllis Brooks says the event starts off with a fun run.
“It’s going to begin at 7:00pm, the 5K follows at 7:30pm, and then we have a 10K that will start at 8:30pm. People that run these series, because we do have a 10K, they get credit for three races, so that is why we added the 10K last year”, said Brooks.
Making its return for the third year in a row, will be the “bounty” on last year’s 10.1K best time.
“We are going to have a bounty again this year for the runner who beats last year’s time on the 10K, the winning time last year was 33:25, so get to practicing so you can maybe when that three hundred dollars”, said Brooks.
Pre-registration has officially come to a close for those who were hoping to guarantee themselves an event shirt; registration is still open for interested in participating in the race.
Registration forms are available online at www.elbertga.com or at the Elbert County Chamber of Commerce office.
