EARLY PACKET PICKUP- will be at Omega Sports in Morrisville from 4-7pm on Friday, March 20.
You can also pickup packets and t-shirts the morning of the race beginning at 7am.
The Corridor District of the United Methodist Church is working to raise money to support Imagine No Malaria. The Skeeter Run 5K is a part of this campaign to help wipe out malaria.
Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a person every 60 seconds. But there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership and together with our partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all.
This out and back race will take place on the American Tobacco Trail beginning at C. M. Herndon Park, with a turn around point just before Massey’s Chapel Road.
If you do NOT want to run or walk but would like to RSVP for the Pancake Breakfast at Parkwood UMC after the race, please RSVP here: http://www.evite.com/event/00BFFOOAPILW6IP76EPEUY2XVSUOCE
