The race will benefit the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Alumni Association that has recently been reinvigorated.

The college is looking to expand the Alumni Association and keep alumni informed of college happenings. Alumni should contact Barbara Meidl (704-216-3876, barb.meidl@rccc.edu).

The race is for competitive and recreational runners, as well as walkers. Walkers are encouraged to participate. The college also encourages individuals with disabilities to participate.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. The 5K costs $25 and the fun run costs $10.
