Arden River Rat 5K Race slated for Saturday

The Arden River Rats Relay For Life team is sponsoring the fourth annual Arden River Rat Race 5K Run/Walk. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12, with registration at 8 a.m. and the race beginning at 9 a.m.

The course will take runners and walkers from the Arden Community Building, across the “new bridge” and along Arden’s “grade.” The up-and-back route is a flat course, perfect for beginners and walkers and great for the more advanced runner to set a new personal 5K record.

Proceeds from The Arden River Rat Race will go to Barbour County Relay For Life in the fight against cancer. For more information, please contact Kris Rosier, 304-457-1308, or Shelley Mitchell Starkey, 304-457-5654 or by emailing
