Sunset Chase 5K set

ELKINS — The fourth annual Sunset Chase 5K Fun Run will take place in the streets of downtown Elkins at 7 p.m. Saturday.

This family-friendly event starts and ends at the Elkins Depot and Welcome Center. Registration begins at 6 p.m. and the run will start at 7 p.m. at 315 Railroad Ave.

The Sunset Chase 5K Fun Run is an un-timed, five-kilometer (3.1 mile) “race” aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles and celebrating successes. The 5K will begin prior to dark and participants will receive glow accessories at registration to wear during the run. Whether you walk every step or sprint to the finish, officials know you’re up to the challenge.

Fruit and water will be available to all participants after the run. This year, every paid registrant that completes the race will be placed in a $100 cash prize drawing. Officials will give away three $100 cash prizes sponsored by Citizens Bank of West Virginia.

Sponsors include Allegheny Insurance, Cricket Wireless, Davis Trust Company and Citizens Bank of West Virginia.
