Relay for Life Run/Walk set

Area residents are encouraged to make plans to participate in the 5K Relay for Life Run/Walk May 3.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Highland Park entrance on the Allegheny Highlands Trail in Elkins. Run teams will start first. Walk teams will start 10 minutes later.

There are two ways to enter: as a “Team of One” and as “One Team.” A “Team of One” is one person doing the entire course. “One Team” is up to three people with each doing only a portion of the course.

Relay batons will be provided. The route will be marked every half mile. Pre-registration will guarantee a T-shirt. On the day of the relay, T-shirts will be given out while they last. The winning team will receive winners shirts. The cost is $15 per person. All profits will go to the American Cancer Society.
