The Carrollton Lions Club is sponsoring its first 5K run and walk on Saturday morning, September 26, on Lock Road, starting and ending at the south entrance of General Butler State Resort Park.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the park’s south entrance. Entry forms were printed on Page 18 of last week’s issue of The News-Democrat. The $15 entry fee includes a t-shirt, refreshments, music and medals for the top three finishers in eight categories. The fastest male and fastest female will receive trophies. Checks should be made out to Carrollton Lions Club.

Runners will begin their run at 8:30 a.m., while walkers will start at 8:36 a.m.

Morgan estimated the event would conclude by 10 a.m.
